With the following coding below we are trying to have the coding save the CSV save in whatever directory the file is in and not have the path hard coded.

We are also trying to get this to work with 64-bit.  Any assistance offered would be greatly appreciated.

Sub Write_CVS_XLS()
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False

'
' Write_CVS_XLS Macro
' Writes CVS file then saves XLS file
'

'
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
        "F:\Cadd\Blocks\New Titleblock\Title_Frame_Register.csv", FileFormat:=xlCSV, _
        CreateBackup:=False
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
        "F:\Cadd\Blocks\New Titleblock\Title_Frame_Register.xls", FileFormat:= _
        xlExcel8, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", ReadOnlyRecommended:=False _
        , CreateBackup:=False
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
   
End Sub

Just use the Path property of the current workbook;
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
        Activeworkbook.path & "\Title_Frame_Register.csv", FileFormat:=xlCSV, _
        CreateBackup:=False
