Excel SaveAs method and naming conventions

8 views (last 30 days)
I was curious if there was a built in WB.SaveAs method and how to use it.
I'm currently using WB.Save to highlight the difference between two excel files, but wanted to have not override the original document.
Also would like the files' names to end differently as well by using the folder's names at end, as excel doesn't want to open up two files with the same names.

There is a SaveAs method. You can record a macro in Excel to see how it's typically used. Or see this:
You might also like to look at the functions strrep, fileparts, and sprintf to create new filenames.
I'm also attaching an Excel_utils class with a bunch of useful functions.
