xlbook.WorkSheets(1).SaveAs finalfilename, -4143 "unknown runtime error"

hi, i followed the suggestion in the related post but when I changed my code from:
xlbook.WorkSheets(1).SaveAs finalfilename, -4143
 I get "Unknown runtime error".

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?  the first line works, the second doesn't. (I am working asp, vbscript)

thank you.

why not use ?
xlbook.WorkSheets(1).SaveAs ( finalfilename, -4143 )

What version of Excel are you using?  If it's 2003 or prior, then -4143 will save as a .xls file.  If you are using 2007, then you should use one of the new enumerations.  Check out this link for an list of the ones for 07.

cyhung - xlbook.WorkSheets(1).SaveAs ( finalfilename, -4143 )  will give the error "cannot use parentheses when calling sub"

Take that back....SaveAs is a method for a worksheet object, but I can't get it to work the way you have it in Excel 03 either.

Are you wanting to save the entire workbook, or just one sheet out of it as a separate document?

If the entire workbook, then use the workbook object as in my last post.
