Method SaveAS ofobject_Workbook failed

Can an expert throw any light on this.

I use the below to save files without any problems.

Other colleagues also use without problems.

But some colleagues get the Methd SaveAs error.

I have noted that if the year [2015] file is in the folder it works for everyone every time

If the year is not in the folder it falls over with the error, so it is not creating the Year Folder.

Sub MonthFolder()
    Dim sFilename As String
    Dim sPath As String
    sFilename = "Test File " 'Set filename
    sPath = "C:\ABC\XYZ"       'Set base path"
    If Right(sPath, 1) <> "\" Then sPath = sPath & "\" 'Check for "\"
    sPath = sPath & Format(Date, "yyyy\\m mmm yyyy\\")
    If Dir(sPath, vbDirectory) = "" Then             'If folder doesn't exist, create it
        Shell "cmd /c mkdir """ & sPath & """"
    End If
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs sPath & sFilename & Format(Date - 1, " ddmmmyy") & ".xls"

End Sub
