I use the below macro which was given to me by IrogSinta on EE,  to save files where the date and month change
In my current project I need to save files that are forward dated 3 days but I do not want to save with weekend dates. i.e. on Wed I need to save with Mondays date, Thurs with Tues and Friday with Wed.

 Could the below code be amended to do this.


Sub monthFolder()
    Dim sFilename As String
    Dim sPath As String
     
    sFilename = "myWorkbook.xls" 'Set filename
    sPath = "C:\rights\Mkt\Break\" 'Set base path
    If Right(sPath, 1) <> "\" Then sPath = sPath & "\" 'Check for "\"
   
    sPath = sPath & Format(Date, "yyyy\\mm mmm\\")
   
    If Dir(sPath, vbDirectory) = "" Then 'If folder doesn't exist, create it
        Shell "cmd /c mkdir """ & sPath & """"
    End If
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs sPath & Format(Date, "mmddyyyy_") & sFilename
End Sub

Hi,

This should do it:
Sub monthFolder()
    Dim sFilename As String
    Dim sPath As String
     
    sFilename = "myWorkbook.xls" 'Set filename
    sPath = "C:\rights\Mkt\Break\" 'Set base path
    If Right(sPath, 1) <> "\" Then sPath = sPath & "\" 'Check for "\"
    
    sPath = sPath & Format(WorksheetFunction.WorkDay(Now(), 3), "yyyy\\mm mmm\\")
   
    If Dir(sPath, vbDirectory) = "" Then 'If folder doesn't exist, create it
        Shell "cmd /c mkdir """ & sPath & """"
    End If
    
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs sPath & Format(WorksheetFunction.WorkDay(Now(), 3), "mmddyyyy_") & sFilename
End Sub

Open in new window


It moves the folder path forward 3 days also.

John
