Save file over existing file with password

Jagwarman asked
Last Modified: 2014-12-09
I use the below code to save a file with a date and a password

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="\\ukancbdata02\S-gdata\AllFiles\Recon\London\Events\Consolidated Report\Consolidated " & Format(DateAdd("d", -0, Date), "YYYY") & ".xls", _
    FileFormat:=xlNormal, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="pact", _
        ReadOnlyRecommended:=True, CreateBackup:=False

What I need to do do is overwrite the file each day but because it is password protected the code returns an error.

Could an Expert provide me with the code that will enable me to save the file each day over the existing file with the password.
