Use a form field?

Note, however, that you, the server-side web application, cannot write to arbitrary locations on the client-side (browser) hard drive. If you want the user to be able to save the file anywhere then you need to have the user (browser) download the file.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
