Macro in Word 10 - Force a 'Save As' as the first step in a macro project

I am running a series of macros to converting an Instructor Manual to a Student Manual. Because I want to keep the original manual intact, I would like to force the user to Save As a new document before running the rest of the macro.

Does anyone have the code to make this work?

This would do it,
Sub SaveAsStudentManual()
    Dim strFileName As String
    
    strFileName = ActiveDocument.FullName
    ActiveDocument.SaveAs Replace(strFileName, ".", "_Student.")
End Sub

Open in new window

but you could also set the source document to read-only and/or do File/New when starting so that the original is treated as a template a new document created.
