Save Dialog / Move File problem


Hello,

I have an application that creates a file name output.html in the same directory as the application.  I'm trying to give the user the option to save this file to a different name and location.

Here's the code that I have right now:


    sDialog.Title := 'Save your file...';
    sDialog.Filter := 'HTML File (*.html)|*.html';
    sDialog.DefaultExt := 'html';
    sDialog.FilterIndex := 1;

    If sDialog.Execute Then
    Begin
        ShowMessage(sDialog.FileName);
        MoveFile('output.html',PChar(sDialog.FileName));
    End;

This doesn't work.  I don't receive any errors, but it simply doesn't move the file to any location.

Thanks!
