Try this:
//--------- handy utility fn
BOOL StrToTextFile( LPCSTR szFile, CString& sText )
{
    CFile cFile;
    BOOL fRet= cFile.Open( szFile, CFile::modeCreate | CFile::modeWrite );
    if ( !fRet ) {
        return( FALSE ); // error occured
    }
    try {
        cFile.Write( (LPCSTR)sText, sText.GetLength() );
    }
    catch ( CFileException* pEx ) {
        pEx->ReportError();
       return( FALSE );
    }
    cFile.Close();
   return( TRUE );
}

//----------------------------- example of usage
void CMyDlg::OnButton1()
{
    // make it a "Save As..." dlg and provide a default filename
    CFileDialog dlg( FALSE, "TXT", "NewFile.txt" );  
    int nRet= dlg.DoModal();
    if (nRet == IDOK ) {
       CString sFile= dlg.m_ofn.lpstrFile;
   
       // Now get the text of the EditBox
       CString sTextToSave;
       m_ctlEdit.GetWindowText( sTextToSave );
       // or GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1)->GetWindowText(...)    

       // Now save the text to the file
       BOOL fRet=  StrToTextFile( sFile, sTextToSave );
       // TRUE mean no error, else add a msgbox here
    }
}

If you need any part of this explained, just ask!  I'll provide whatever details you need.

Hi pbtdanh,
As an expert here at EE, I am striving for a "4.0 grade point average."  When you accept my comment as a "Good" answer, it lowers my average.  Please answer these questions, to help me understand how to improve:

1) Did the comment I posted help you to solve your problem?

2) Obviously my comment was less than a perfect solution in your eyes.  What could I have added to make it 100% perfect?

3) Do you understand that if the comment does not fully solve your problem, that you have the option -- in fact, the responsibility -- to respond to clarify the question or add some details?

4) Do you understand that it costs you no more to give an A than it does to give a B or a C, but that the expert recieves more points for the better grade?

5) Have you read the information at
http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/cmtyQuestAnswer.jsp#3
and do you understand it?

6) Is there anything I said that offended you in any way?
