Hi Experts,

I am using late binding to open Excel in 2002.

I have opened a workbook and wish to save it in CSV format, problem is when i type Format:=xlcsv as an argument for the workbook.saveas function call the error is xlcsv is not declared. I know why this happens; its because excel is not referenced.

Here is a similar example to my code

Dim XL as object
XL= CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Dim Wbk as object
Wbk.SaveAs(FileName:=OutputPath, Format:=XlCsv)

Is there a way i can save the workbook as a csv when using late binding?
