I my existing macro I have to save the active worksheet as a csv.  The csv will always exist in the directory which I am saving it to.  Is there a parameter in the saveas command that will automatically answer the replace file question?
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="C:\my documents\Costing.csv", FileFormat:=xlCSV, CreateBackup:=False

Hi rosebud,

If you toggle DisplayAlerts before and after the saveas line, it shouldn't prompt you.

Matt
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="C:\my documents\Costing.csv", FileFormat:=xlCSV, CreateBackup:=False
Application.DisplayAlerts = True

Not a problem! It is a useful thing to use remove any prompt you get (saveas, erase sheet, etc). Almost as useful as turning off ScreenUpdating to make things run smoother :) Let me know if you need anything else
