Hi,

I am using the GetSaveAsFilename method to allow a user to select where they wish to save a file. The only problem is that I cannot seem to specify where the default save location should be? Or do I have to use another method?

Any thanks would be great,

Mark

Specify the folder you want to save in with a "\" on the end of it:
Application.GetSaveAsFileName("C:\SomeDir\")

Yes, it is, but you can specify a folder by putting a "\" at the end of the path.  Just try it, trust me ;).

If the way I suggested makes you feel uncomfortable, or there's another reason you can't use it, you can also do this:
ChDir("C:\SomeDir")
Application.GetSaveAsFileName
