I want to save text5.text with the commondialog. I use:
Private Sub save_Click()
CommonDialog1.CancelError = True
CommonDialog1.DialogTitle = "Commando save"
On Error Resume Next
CommonDialog1.ShowSave
End Sub

My problem is, I don't know how to specify what I want to save.
Sorry, thats all my points.

Use FileName

Private Sub save_Click()
    CommonDialog1.CancelError = True
    CommonDialog1.DialogTitle = "Commando save"
    CommonDialog1.FileName = "MyFile.txt"
    On Error Resume Next
    CommonDialog1.ShowSave
End Sub

As in CommonDialog1.FileName = Text5.Text, the variable holding the filename;

or

dim fh as integer

fh = freefile
open "MyFile.txt" for output as #fh
print #fh, Text5.Text  ' Could use Write #fh, Text5.Text
close #fh
