My app launches the FileDialogBox and defaults to Directory and Filename.
Now I need to somehow automatically press the SAVE key so there is no user intervetion.
Any thoughts?

Why even bother launching the FileDialog box, it doesn't sound like it serving any purpose?  Why not just set the variables and bypass it totally?  I'm sure I'm over simplifying, but...

Instead of calling a dialogbox to do what you already do with hard coded values, take that hard coded values and use it instead to wait what is returned from dialog.
This question is real strange.
If you want, for instance to save a file and you already have folder and filename, why to use the dialog?, just pass those values to your , for instance, Save procedure/sub/function.

Experts here very much appreciate comments when they have helped you and the results are less than "A" level results.  We all take pride in delivering excellence and appreciate feedback from you anytime we fall short of those expectations so that the "missing" elements or added insights can be added.  Why did you choose to grade less than an "A" here, please?

To add a little more explanation on grading:  The goal on grading is to assess the value given in the question, and to give it the level of quality that will entice others to visit the solution if it served you once the question has migrated to our PAQ.  People are more likely to visit a question in our PAQ that is an A question grade rather than one which is a lower grade.  In addition, the points you give a question remain the same, but the points which flow to the expert are a direct result of the grade assigned.  Example:  100 points at an A grade = 400, B = 300, C=200

Listening further.  If no response will assume the grade was chosen in error and will correct.
