Try this, it also traps when the user clicks on "Cancel"...
ask file "Bewaar woordenlijst als:" with "*.TXT"
IF it = empty THEN exit mouseup
put it into vUserChoice
IF char -4 to -1 of vUserChoice <> ".TXT" THEN put ".TXT" after
put field "woorden_uit" into URL ("file:" & vUserChoice)
answer "De woordenlijst is bewaard!"
