Hi

I hope you can help me with this.

I have various bits of VBA that manipulate data from different sources ready for upload into Access.  The user needs to be able to pick up the upload file, but whatever format I save it as, Excel won't recognise it to reopen it.  I've dredged the web and have tried more versions of "FileFormat:=" than you can imagine!

The code button above won't don't anything, so here's the relevant bit of code:

    uploadName = Application.GetSaveAsFilename
   
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
        uploadName, FileFormat:=56, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", _
        ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, CreateBackup:=False

I'm awarding 500 points for a quick answer that works.

Thanks
Sarah

Is there an extension on the end of uploadName? If so, what is it?

Hi Rory

I hadn't put a file extension on, so I tried that and it worked fine.

Thanks...:-)

I'll close the question and award the points, but I'll have to do it via my phone as we're only allowed IE6 here and I can't see the close button on the page, so please bear with me.

I have another question too, so I'll post that in a minute.

Thanks
Sarah
