Hi I'd like to save a file in 2 formats.

though I need to know what format the person selected when saving the file

when the save box opens there is a drop down box with lots of file extensions.

if the person selected txt then

if save.ext='txt then
else if save.ext='doc' then

and so on. when the the code is executed.

cos it has a thing for save.filename

has it got one for the extension?

You have the FilterIndex property of the TSaveDialog which tells you what extension was selected when the dialog was closed...

just use the filterindex :

if you set the filter property
txt first
doc second

  if SaveDialog1.Execute then
    case SaveDialog1.FilterIndex of
      1: --> txt
      2: --> doc
