Word 2002 SP3 SaveAs FileDialog macro code problem

I got this from the VBA Help of Word 2002:
This example displays the Save As dialog box.

Sub ShowSaveAsDialog()
    Dim dlgSaveAs As FileDialog
    Set dlgSaveAs = Application.FileDialog( _
        FileDialogType:=msoFileDialogSaveAs)
    dlgSaveAs.Show
End Sub
 This creates two problems for me:
1) It displays the SAVE and NOT the SAVEAS dialog, anyone know why?
2) When I type in the filename to save the file as, the file is NOT saved as such, anyone know why?

Hope you can shed some light on this for me VBA is not my forte

TIA

I cannot compile your code in my Word 2000 application - FileDialog type is not known. For this reason, it may be better to have this question moved to the Word Area.
Meanwhile, you might like to try this alternative code which works OK for me in Word 2000 VBA.

Sub ShowSaveAsDialog()
    Dim dlgSaveAs As Dialog
    Set dlgSaveAs = Dialogs(wdDialogFileSaveAs)
    dlgSaveAs.Show
End Sub
