try code like this:

dim iFile sa Long

iFile = Freefile

open "A:/MyFile.txt" for output as #Ifile

Print #ifile,MyText

close #iFile

you can also use the statement Write#

look up the Open Statement in the VB Help system, for examples (you may need to look at the "See Also" choices shown in the Help system.

Arthur_Wood is right, but the "A:/..." should be a backslash in Windows: "A:\..."

By the way, EE does not encourage code being sent directly to its users because then there is no database entry for future viewers.
