Welcome to the forums iliya,

What you want to do is fairly simple with LiveCode.
Instead of showing the whole code on how to do this, I think you would find it better in the long term to source the information and put it together yourself. I have provided a few links below which should help you.

LiveCode Lessons - Working with Files

LiveCode Wiki - a great source of examples and easy to follow explanations

Once you have some code, post it back here and the community will look through it and advice on any changes that may be required.

What Andy said.

But basically, and there are other ways to do this:

Code: Select all

   open file yourFilePath for text write
   write yourData to file yourFilePath
   close file yourFilePath

Also useful will be reference on specialFolderPath codes, as definitely explored by Ken Ray a long time ago, but still valid today on Windows 10
