VBA - A button to save filename of a document to a cell

Ask a question


Issue


I need to create a button that saves a modified document as a number in a particular cell (e.g in A6).

Solution


Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() 
  '.xlsm or xls depending if you want to save the macros. 
  ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="c:\archive\" & Cells(1, 6) & ".xlsm" 
  Cells(1, 5) = "Archived" 
  If Cells(1, 5) = "Archived" Then 
    CommandButton1.Visible = False 
  End If 
End Sub
