Use Flush procedure:
  f: TextFile;
  if OpenDialog1.Execute then
  begin                    { open a text file }
    AssignFile(f, OpenDialog1.FileName);
    Writeln(f, 'I am appending some stuff to the end of the file.');
    Flush(f);  { ensures that the text was actually written to file }
    { insert code here that would require a Flush before closing the file }
