Set out in plain language what do you need to do. Then look in the Help file for functions that let you do those things. Like this: :)

Requirements: Read the edit control - write the content to the file whose name you already have.

Functions you might find: GUICtrlRead - FileWrite.

See, not too hard. ;)
