it goes into the current directory.

You can check it with a little script like:
put the directory

That will return the folder where you can find your file.

Just doubleclick that file and Textedit (on a Mac) or Editor
(on windows) will start and open it.

Of course you can manage where to save that file, e.g. with
"specialfolderpath(xyz)" or something.

This will save the file on your desktop:
put fld "data field" into url ("file:" & specialfolderpath("desktop")  
& "/test data.txt")
