Example 1 (Save a list in Text format):

In this example, two local variables, FilePath and FileName, are created with Text as their data types. These variables are combined to form the Path Name parameter, which specifies the location for saving a text file. Additionally, a dictionary list named Car Parts'is created. This list is iterated over, with each item being assigned as the List Reference parameter representing the content to be saved in the text file. Once the list is stored in local storage, a notification is displayed in a Message Box indicating whether the text file was successfully saved.
