I am working on a text editor (used with Borland C++ Builder 6) and everything was running find until I had to create a save function (or event handler). My save as event handler works great, but just plain save screws up. I get a pop up window error when I click save that says
 Project TextEditor.exe raised exception class EFCreateError with message 'Cannot create file'. Process Stopped. Use Step or Run to continue.
Here is my code:
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------

#include <vcl.h>
#pragma hdrstop

#include "Unit1.h"
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
#pragma package(smart_init)
#pragma resource "*.dfm"
TForm1 *Form1;
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
__fastcall TForm1::TForm1(TComponent* Owner)
        : TForm(Owner)
{
}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------


void __fastcall TForm1::FileNewExecute(TObject *Sender)
{
RichEdit1->Clear();
FileName = "untitled.txt";
StatusBar1->Panels->Items[0]->Text = FileName;
}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
void __fastcall TForm1::FileOpen1Accept(TObject *Sender)
{
RichEdit1->Lines->LoadFromFile (FileOpen1->Dialog->FileName);
FileName = FileOpen1->Dialog->FileName;
StatusBar1->Panels->Items[0]->Text = FileName;
}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
void __fastcall TForm1::FileSaveExecute(TObject *Sender)
{
if (FileName == "untitled.txt")
    FileSaveAs1->Execute();
else
    RichEdit1->Lines->SaveToFile(FileName);
}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------


void __fastcall TForm1::FileSaveAs1BeforeExecute(TObject *Sender)
{
FileSaveAs1->Dialog->InitialDir = ExtractFilePath (FileName);
}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------

void __fastcall TForm1::FileSaveAs1Accept(TObject *Sender)
{
FileName = FileSaveAs1->Dialog->FileName;
RichEdit1->Lines->SaveToFile(FileName);
StatusBar1->Panels->Items[0]->Text = FileName;
}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please help

Put a breakpoint right before the save. Check what name you're trying to create. Figure out why that name is wrong.

Also, put a breakpoint right before the save, and then enable the debugger feature that makes it break on all exception throws, so you can see where the exception is being thrown from.
