Hi,

My below sub saves a file

If the file is already there I want a Yes/No message box saying "File already exist, overwrite"

If yes, overwrite, if no exit sub

Thanks




Sub SaveTheFile_BB()

'This code saves the file that has been manipulated with the affix "Manipulated"
'This means, for audit and cross checking purposes, we have the original file and the
'manipulated file


    SuffixDate = Format(Date, "dd mmm")
    FileYear = Year(Date)

    MonthOffset = 0
If Day(Date) = 1 Then MonthOffset = 1
    FileMonth = Month(Date) - MonthOffset
    FileDate = Format(Date, "mmm yy")
    FilePath = "R:\SPM\CAO\FRA\" & FileYear & "\" & FileDate & "\France BB - " & SuffixDate & ".xlsx"

    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=FilePath

    ActiveWorkbook.Close



End Sub

If the File already exists you should get the standard overwrite warning unless somewehere earlier in the script you have switched off Events and/or Alert Displays.

Before the Save As line include:

Application.DisplayAlerts = True

Thanks
