The answer to that lies in actuallu running the code you posted. What happens when you create a script with exactly what you posted?

Your code will put the info in a MsgBox... because that is what you told it to do. If you want to send it to Notepad, then make certain notepad is the active window and then use the send command or there are a half a dozen other ways you could do it, it all depends on what you are wanting to accomplish.


[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]

Post an example of exactly what you expect to be sent to notepad.

And to write the info I gave you earlier to a text file just replace the MsgBox with FileWriteLine() and write it to a text file.

#include <date.au3>
$oFile = @DesktopDir & "\Test.txt"
FileWriteLine($oFile, "Todays date/Time: " & _Now())
