Files to folder

I have a program which I have a menu to automatically save a file. The file is being temporarily saved to the memory. Once I unload the program my files are lost. So, I created a folder so that my files would be saved into that folder. My problem is how do I do that. I need help on doing this. I need to save the file to a folder. I don't want to create a flat file (ie text file). This works like a Favorites for Internet Explorer. Where if you wanted to bookmark something, that page is saved in the Favorites folder. The file is the actual link to the web site.

Here is how you can create a file with the link....

Open "C:\Test.txt" For Output As #1
' Print to the output file.
Print #1, strTextToPutInFile
' Close the output file.
Close #1

Pauljk I don't want it to create a text file. I would like to save the file as is (ie word doc, excel files ,etc.). Could also please unlock the question.

Thanks

The program should work much like the saving a bookmark or favorites for the Internet Explorer. What I want it to do is when the user clicks on the menu and click save, the file will be automatically saved to a folder (ie C:\Temp\Test). Thanks again. Pauljk I have already done that in my program. I don't want my file to be saved as a flat file.

Do you have the file in memory as a byte array? If so the solution is

  Dim Filenr as Integer

  Filenr = FreeFile
  Open filename For Binary As #Filenr
  Put #Filenr, , ByteArray()
  Close #Filenr

This will store the data to the file "just-as-it-is". Check your helpfile's info for more info on the Put statement.
