It always helps to look up the help for a function that you wish to use 
- this would avoid wasting time on syntax like:

Export["file.txt", {i, 1, 2000}, b]

(Click on Export, and press F1)

Here is some code that takes the matrix 'b' and makes into a matrix with 
the indices, and then transposes the result, so you get a column of 
indices and a column of numbers.

The export is to a comma separated file (CSV) - this will be easy to 
re-import into Mathematica using Import.

In[3]:= Export["~/test/hope.csv", Transpose[{Range[1, 200], b}]]

Out[3]= "~/test/hope.csv"
