If this still doesn't work then I suggest you visit the file you want to write to in Emacs and copy the full filename used by Emacs into your function. I'll look at this more carefully later.

Get Outlook for Android

Thanks, Francis. I tried escaped backslashes and slashes. After this
didn't work either:

(defun save-sscratch (start end) ;; M-x sch
"Append region in *scratch* to file scratch.txt."
(interactive "r")
(with-current-buffer "*scratch*"
    (write-region start end "c:/mydocu~1/scratch.txt" t)))

I noticed that the in the alias def for sch the 'save-sscratch' function
name was spelled wrong.
