What i think you need a download link insted of save dialog box..Because Server never save any thing to client machine directly.
I can be in Window form not in Asp.net...
If you want to save a file on server there is a control named file up-loader..
if i am not wrong..
OR please give full brief of your requirement..

I am still not clear but it look like you want to store txt file on User System.i think.
if no then this is the code will help you to store file on Server

tring DirctoryPath = Server.MapPath(FolderName);
                    DirectoryInfo dirinfo = new DirectoryInfo(DirctoryPath);
                    if (!Directory.Exists(DirctoryPath))
                        dirinfo.Create();
                    else
                    {
                        FileInfo TheFile = new FileInfo(DirctoryPath + "\\" + Filename);
                        if (TheFile.Exists)
                            File.Delete(DirctoryPath + "\\" +FileName);
                    } 

 FileUploader.SaveAs(DirctoryPath + "\\" + FileName);
