The code snippet below directs a new workbook to c:\tmp

If Dir(ThisWorkbook.Path & "\" & "new.xlsx") = "" Then
        xBook.SaveAs Filename:=ThisWorkbook.Path & "\" & ThisWorkbook.Name & "_" & Format(Now(), "yyyymmdd_hhnnss") & ".xlsx", FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbook, CreateBackup:=False
    Else
        xBook.SaveAs Filename:=ThisWorkbook.Path & "\" & "new.xlsx", FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbook, CreateBackup:=False
    End If

How would this be altered to go to D:\My Documents (windows environment)

And the equivalent in the MAC OS. I don't use MAC and not sure if there is a common directory for docs.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

maybe I am misunderstanding the solution. once the second Workbook is created it should be filed into "My Documents". I'm making the assumption that "My Documents" is the same for XP, and windows 7/8. Not sure how the code should be written to accomplish. Thanks
