Hi,
I have a code to create a .xls file and save it but it does not seem to work with .xlsm


 xlSecondapp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
                     xlSecondapp.displayalerts = False
                     xlsecondwb = xlSecondapp.Workbooks.add
                     xlsecondws = xlsecondwb.Worksheets(1)
                     If RejectFile <> String.Empty Then
                        xlsecondwb.SaveAs(RejectFile)
                     Else
                     End If


Any suggestions are appreciated

do you mean you cannot save the file when

Rejectfile = "filename.xlsm"

?

If so, and you are working with office 2007 or higher, try this :

xlsecondwb.SaveAs(RejectFile, 52)

Open in new window
