From Excel, I have written VBA code that will save a file with a predetermined filename.  

If that filename already exists, I need VBA to open the SaveAs dialog window and supply a suggested filename.

How do I open the SaveAs dialog with VBA code?

This works great, but I also need it to default the Save as Type combobox toshow *.xls.

Is that possible?

Try adding ,1 to the end:
application.dialogs(xlDialogSaveAs).Show "C:\test", 1

Open in new window
