the save dialog won't actually save your file. It is just a way for your program to query the user for a path and a file name. If your app is specifically asking to save a Word document, you should change the Filter property:
o.Filter = "Word Document (*.doc)|*.doc"

Open in new window

Éric Moreau,
Any changes here :

Select Case o.FilterIndex
                Case 1
                    RichTextBox1.SaveFile(o.FileName, _
                               RichTextBoxStreamType.PlainText)
                Case 2
                    RichTextBox1.SaveFile(o.FileName, _
                               RichTextBoxStreamType.RichText)
            End Select

This is my logic because my sample was saving the content of a richtextbox. What you need to use is the o.FileName which contains the full path selected by the user in the dialog box and use it in your own save mechanism
