How to skip the SAVE AS dialog box in an Excel Macro

Hi,

I currently have a macro to save as when a certain cell is changed and then input that cell as the name for the new workbook.

The problem is simply that when it does save, the save as dialog box appears.

And I've done it so it automatically changes the name around this box so whatever is put into the filename at this point will not do anything.

Is there a way to just hit the 'save' button, or skip the box entirely?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    If Intersect(Target, Range("C16")) Is Nothing Then
    Exit Sub
    Else
   fileSaveName = Application.GetSaveAsFilename( _
   fileFilter:="Excel Files (*.xlsm), *.xlsm")

   If fileSaveName <> False Then
      Dim thisWb As Workbook
      Filename = "\Invoice " & Range("C16")
      Set thisWb = ActiveWorkbook
      thisWb.SaveAs thisWb.Path & Filename, FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled
     
      If fileSaveName <> False Then
            MsgBox "Saved as " & thisWb.Path & Filename
    End If
   End If
    End If
End Sub


Thanks!
