Hi,

i need to change the path of the file from Desktop to variable. Save_file_dialog. I tried different variations wo success.
FileExtStr = ".csv": FileFormatNum = 6

Thanks in advance
Mandy

Sub csv_Export()
    Dim lastColumn As Integer
    Dim lastRow As Integer
    Dim strString As String
    Dim i As Integer, j As Integer
    Dim UD As String
    
    UD = CreateObject("WScript.Shell").specialfolders("Desktop")
    UD = UD & "\export.csv"
    Worksheets("TEST").Activate
    lastColumn = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Column - 1 + ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Columns.Count
    lastRow = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows(ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count).Row

    Open UD For Output As #1

    For i = 1 To lastRow
        Cells(i, 1).Select
        strString = ""
        For j = 1 To lastColumn
            If j <> lastColumn Then
                strString = strString & Cells(i, j).Value & ";" ' Use semicolon instead of pipe.
            Else
                strString = strString & Cells(i, j).Value
            End If
        Next j
        If Len(Trim$(Replace(strString, ";", ""))) > 0 Then
        Print #1, strString
        End If
     Next i

    Close #1
End Sub
