    The file will be created on the Service Tier server, not on your PC. Check if the directory "D:\Test" exists on the server.

    Hi

    You can use .net to write directly to your host.

    Look at http://www.dynamics.is/?p=1405 for examples.

    Or use the functions in codeunit 419 to download the file to the client:
    txtTempFilename := cdu3TierMgt.ServerTempFileName('output','txt');
      filOutput.CREATE(txtTempFilename);
      filOutput.CREATEOUTSTREAM(lOutStream);
      XMLPORT.EXPORT(XMLPORT::"Your XMLPort", lOutStream);
      filOutput.CLOSE;
      cdu3TierMgt.DownloadToFile(txtTempFilename, 'D:\Test\output.txt');
