Can you point me to the bit you were trying to show me? The code below opens a save file dialog with getsaveasfilenam. Does this sound about right? All times are GMT I’m trying to set a path location so the user can select a file from that location and copy “A1” at the file name.

Interesting…I amended this code so that instead of the filename being blank, it returns the ActiveWorkbook. Using the GetSaveAsFilename dialog box, is not a save function, it is used to get the string you want to save as, you will still have to use a saveas line to complete the action.

Note the save file dialog will not actually save the file.

GetSaveAsFilename – Daily Dose of Excel

Thank you very much. Specifies the suggested file name. Ok I’ve kind of got somewhere with this.

I have code, that only runs when a user chose “Save As”. I’ve populated the “” with the desired filename prefix and this now works great. For example, the following string specifies two file filters, text and addin: I’ve got this to work now, but I get the dialogue box asking if I’m sure I want to save as a macro free workbook.

I’ve been thinking, to use ActiveWorkbook.

Post as a guest Name. Posting code between tags makes your code much easier to read and copy for testing, it also maintains VBA formatting. I’m very much a novice when it comes to VBA! Use code tags around code. Last edited by k13r4n; at Other times I get a more generic syntax error. Leave it to Microsoft….

Hi Davesexcel, think I was typing as you posted.

Thank you – I will do. I agreed to these rules. Just like with GetOpenFilename, you can test whether the result getasveasfilename False to determine getaaveasfilename the user clicked the Cancel button.

The problem I came across was a type mismatch while checking if the user clicked on Cancel when he did not do that. And on Windows, it does not work the way the help claims. Ozgrid is Not Associated With Microsoft.
