Open and save existing Excel file

VB6 : I 'm looking for a manner to open an existing Excelfile (with a certain lay-out) and then save it under another name. I have to put the records from a recordset in such a file. The difficult part is to save the file while I have always problems with closing the original file and reopening it for new edit. (Each recordline in my recordset must be a new saved file.)
Please find below my code :
    For i = 1 To 30
        vRsDepenses.Filter = "Magasin_id = " & i
        If vRsDepenses.RecordCount > 0 Then
            Set objExcel = New Excel.Application
            objExcel.Visible = False
            objExcel.Workbooks.Open ("C:\Program Files\Club\Report.xls")

           With objExcel.Sheets("Caisse")
                .Cells(1, 1).Value = "JHKIHFccG"
                .Cells(1, j).Value = vRsDepenses.Fields("Date_Depenses")
                .Cells(3, j).Value = vRsDepenses.Fields("Cash")
                ' ...
           End With
            'Close and save Excel File
            objExcel.SaveWorkspace ("C:\Program Files\Club\Reports\KRC" & vRsRecettes.Fields("magasin_id") & ".xls")
            Set objExcel = Nothing
        End If
        pFrm("ProgressBar1").Value = i
    Next i

Hello claesk,

you could try to change the save workspace to
objExcel.ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs ("C:\Program Files\Club\Reports\KRC" & vRsRecettes.Fields("magasin_id") & ".xls")
