Save XML file with Macro

Hi Experts,

I have a file that has some Macro running and I need to save that file as a .XML.  The problem is when I save the file as .XML there is no macro running or showing up.

I might be saving the file wrong or I need a script, ect.

If you can please let me know what I am doing wrong this is appreciated.

The fact is that you can't save macros into an XML file, only data.

If you want the macro, then you have to go with XLSM.

If you describe your situation and the problem you are trying to solve with the files etc, we might be able to offer other work around approaches, but unfortunately if you want to "save as" the XML file type, then your macros will not be saved, just the data (and I believe just one worksheet).
