I'm using the following code to save a report as a PDF file.  Everything works but the Save As box pops up requesting a file name and another box after that asking whether or not I want to replace the existing file.  I want it to automatically save the file and replace the existing file.  How can I do this?

Thanks.

you can delete the old file before doing the save Kill "filename". As far as the prompt for the filename all i can think of is to try sendkeys "c:\...~" the ~ will do an enter and you may want to try this first without the ~ to test that the keys are been sent to the correct window.

Cheers, Andrew
