output data to file

output data to file

hello everyone, could someone help me in complete this? I am newbie in vbscript.
I have this code below that works fine, however it's possible to output the text to a file .txt or in preference to xml file?
Basically what this does, it's open an external program... insert a code and press F18 to check available stock. Then I would like to send the information to xml file or other format that I could work. Don't need to parse anything, could send the text as is to a file.
I couldn't find too much examples on internet or I don't really find how to search exactly.

'VBScript Example
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Sub goToNext()
WScript.Sleep 1000
WshShell.SendKeys "+{F6}"
End Sub

Sub multipleTab(value)
Dim tab
tab = 1

While tab < value
WshShell.SendKeys "{TAB}"
End Sub

If WshShell.AppActivate("TAP HostSystem") Then

WshShell.SendKeys "H301AKM1"

End If

RE: output data to file

Basic Example...

Set objFSO=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

' How to write file
Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(outFile,True)
objFile.Write "test string" & vbCrLf
