Hello Experts:
The following macro, in Module 1 of a XLSM file, falls short of the goal... to save the active worksheet, sans macros, to a file in the same directory as the active file, with a name that begins with a fixed text "WTS_" followed by current year, "_", tab name of active sheet, ".xls".    

Resultant filename will look similar to:  "WTS_2012_7-8"

Thanks for your help    

Dim sCopyName As String
         sCopyName = "WTS_" & Format(Now, "yyyy") &"_"&{active tab name here}& ".xls"
         ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=sCopyName, FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbook
End Sub
