Hello,

excel guru's,

I am struggling with a problem which should be easy (i think), but with my lack of knowledge of VBA i am stuck.
I have an excel file where daily data from production batches is filled in. It calculates some waste numbers etc.
I can select different products (though Vlookup's) to change some cells with text and/or values.
What i need is that with a click on a macro, a copy of sheet1 is being saved in a new file (workbook) where the filename is coming from a cell from the original file. After the succesfull save (pop up maybe?) the original file should keep its original name.

This is simple,

Go to file, select SAVE as, and go for it!

OR, record a macro of all that you wish for this "EASY BUTTON" to do, and assign a key, and viola!
Thanks for your solution, but i knew this already and this is not what i want. I want it automated by a click on a button. With a recorded macro it isnt possible to save the file with a specific name from a cell.

Sure it is. Get the cell value, store it as a variable, and save it.

fName = thisworkbook.worksheets("sheet1").range("A1").value
thisworkbook.worksheets("Sheet1").SaveAs Filename:=fName
