Click File/Save As/ and choose you part number....
P.S. You need to right click on the part in your feature tree, open it, then do a file/save as....
See below: Welcome to the forum. I'm confused. You can't create material directly in an assembly, only in Parts, although there are "virtual" parts that are created in the assembly and don't exist as seperate files. Those will have the Part's name, along with the Assembly name, in brackets. Is that what you mean? If so, it's easy enough to save it as an external file. Right-click on the Part in the tree and choose "Save Part (in External File)" from the drop-down.
If that's not what you mean can you please explain further?
Edit: I just realized that when you said you were working in an assembly you probably meant a multi-body part instead (those are two distinct file types), so the information I gave is all wrong. Right-click on a body and choose "Insert into New Part..." from the drop-down.
I do not have access to SolidWorks right now but I think there should be a solid bodies folder in the design tree. If you expand that folder and find the solid body for the part you are trying to save I think you can right click and save the part from there.
chris why don't you have solidworks now

Imagine you have an assembly, where you've modeled a triangle, a square and a circle..?
Modeled or sketched? Triangle, square and circle are all 2D entities, not 3D.
Attach your file(s) here and end all doubt.
I might not be using the right terms here. Umm...
The blue-highlighted part. That i wanted to separate from the rest into a new file... After that, all the others. They were all made next to eachother in that particular view. None are a separate file. Its all just that one big mess.
Jeah, i may have skipped a few tutorials... *Innocent whistles*
Attach *.sldprt file(s) here.
