ReSaving a file, keeping its original name.

Why would this fail?  I am trying to resave a file back to the same name that I opened it?
Am I missing something?  All I am looking to do is over write the original.    Please advise


    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="\\na\Global-Groups\Holland\Operations\Logistics\DSC\Go to Work Signals\RePlan Report\NewReplanReportTemplate.xlsm", _
        FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled, CreateBackup:=False

Open in new window

Because you have already got it open, the computer thinks that you are trying to save a new file, so it tries to delete the old file as part of the saving process, but you've already got it open, so it can't.

Why not use ActiveWorkbook.Save instead?

It has been a while since I used VBA in Excel.  However, I think SaveAs would attempt to overwrite the file, but it sound like you already have the file open.

To save the file you currently have open you should only need
ActiveWorkbook.Save
