Experts,
I would like to create a command button that runs a macro that when selected closes Excel, asking to save changes, if changes have been made.
The name of my Workbook is Monthly

Is this what you want?
Dim strMsg As String
Dim intQ As String

strMsg = "Do you want to save changes?"
intQ = MsgBox(strMsg, vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Save changes?")

If intQ = vbYes Then
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=Application.GetSaveAsFilename, FileFormat:=52
End If
ActiveWorkbook.Close

Open in new window

jp: close...real close...I like MsgBox...If the user wants to save changes can I execute a ActiveWorkbook.Save, ActiveWorkbook.Close, and ActiveWorkbook.Quit (not Activeworkbook.SaveAs)

You can make a .SaveAs or .Save

I don't understand your question... sorry.

Here's my code. My objective would be to save the file, close the program and exit excel:

Sub CloseExcel()

Dim strMsg As String
Dim intQ As String

strMsg = "Do you want to save changes?"
intQ = MsgBox(strMsg, vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Save changes?")

If intQ = vbYes Then
ActiveWorkbook.Save Filename:=Application.GetSaveAsFilename, FileFormat:=52

End If
ActiveWorkbook.Close
ActiveWorkbook.Quit
End Sub

Like this should do it:

Sub CloseExcel()

Dim strMsg As String
Dim intQ As String

strMsg = "Do you want to save changes?"
intQ = MsgBox(strMsg, vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Save changes?")

If intQ = vbYes Then
ActiveWorkbook.Save
End If
Application.Quit
End Sub
