I want to create a basic DEM file in .ascii format which will just be a rectangular grid and with no slope i.e same elevation at every cell.
Please provide information on how to achieve this.
I am using ArcGIS 9.3.

Use the Create Constant Raster tool.
An easy approach would be to create a polygon of your study area, and give that feature the hight that you want as an attribute.
