it is :

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. CommonDialog1.ShowSave
If any error occurs, then "Err" object is populated with number and description, u will have to take care of that.

After that, CommonDialog1.FileName will contain the filename which the user wants to save the file as.

It depends on your program how exactly you use this. For example, for saving some text to this file, you'd use:
Dim FileID As Integer
FileID = FreeFile
Open CommonDialog1.Filename For Output As FileID
(Write some stuff to it here)
Close FileID

If you simply wanted to make a copy of one file as this new filename, you'd use
FileCopy OrigFilename, CommonDialog1.Filename
