Hello there,
Example code

Create on your form 1 button with Caption "Create"
1 text box where the file name will be specificated
and another one where you will write the file's contents

and past the code below in your form

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Open Text1.Text For Output As #1
    Print #1, Text2.Text
    Close #1
End Sub

That's all
