Tkinter - asksavefilename vs askopenfilename - neither?

Recommended Posts

In my application I want to let the user specify a new file name or pick an existing file which will simply be appended. 

 

asksavefilename works to specify a new file, but it throws a warning window if an existing file is picked saying it will be overwritten. 

askopenfilename lets you pick an existing file without the overwrite warning, but you can't specify a new file

 

Any ideas how to make either of these work or am I going to have to roll my own dialog?  If I could force asksavefilename not to throw the overwrite warning, that would be great.

Yeah, I thought of that, too.  The catch is that this is the very last piece of my application that I need to finish.  The whole thing is complete apart from the Save functionality and all done in Tkinter.  Ugh.  I hate to mix the two, but maybe for this one piece...
