What do you mean using SaveAs, VB has no routine called SaveAs, how about you create a menu with caption Save As
then call the following in the click event

Sub mnuSaveAs_Click()
saveas "c:\test\test.txt","c:\test\save\test.txt"
End Sub

Sub SaveAs(pstrFromFile As String, pstrToFile As String)
If Len(Dir$(pstrToFile)) > 0 Then
    If MsgBox("File already exists, OverWrite?", vbOKCancel, "OverWrite File") = vbYes Then
        FileCopy pstrFromFile, pstrToFile
    End If
Else
    FileCopy pstrFromFile, pstrToFile
End If
End Sub
