Excel .....ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs

Hi experts,
Need help putting these two lines into VBA for me.
 
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs
and
Workbook.Settings.CheckComptiliblity = False

Here is all the code I am trying to insert this into.

Sub SaveASFile()
Dim SaveAsPath As String
Dim Ans As String
Dim fileName As String

>>>>>>>  ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs fileName:="C:\Users\pike\Desktop\backup\"

fileName = Replace(ThisWorkbook.Name, ".xlsm", ".xls")
Ans = MsgBox("Do you want to Save A Copy?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Confirm Please!")
If Ans = vbYes Then
   Application.DisplayAlerts = False
   
 >>>>>>>>>    Workbook.Settings.CheckComptiliblity = False
   
   ThisWorkbook.SaveAs SaveAsPath & fileName, 51
   Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End If
End Sub

Looks like you are changing to .xls. If so you will lose functionality such as Tables and others. Try this

Option Explicit

Sub SaveASFile()
    Dim Ans As String, fileName As String, SaveAsPath As String

    SaveAsPath = "C:\Users\pike\Desktop\backup\"
  
    Ans = MsgBox("Do you want to Save A Copy?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Confirm Please!")
    If Ans = vbYes Then
    ''/// ask user for new name for workbook
    fileName = Application.InputBox("Plese enter a new name for the saved copy", "Workbook name")
    ''/// if no name entered default to this workbook's name with a file stamp
    If fileName = vbNullString Then fileName = ThisWorkbook.Name & Format(Date, "ddmmyyyy")
        Application.DisplayAlerts = False
        ThisWorkbook.SaveAs SaveAsPath & fileName & "xlsm", 52
        Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    End If
End Sub

Hi Chris

Do you mean this

Option Explicit

Sub SaveASFile()
    Dim Ans As String
    Dim fileName As String
    Dim SaveAsPath As String

    SaveAsPath = "C:\Users\pike\Desktop\backup\"
    '>>>>>>>  ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs fileName:="C:\Users\pike\Desktop\backup\"

    fileName = Replace(ThisWorkbook.Name, ".xlsm", ".xls")
    Ans = MsgBox("Do you want to Save A Copy?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Confirm Please!")
    If Ans = vbYes Then
        Application.DisplayAlerts = False

        '>>>>>>>>>    Workbook.Settings.CheckCompatiliblity = False
        ThisWorkbook.CheckCompatibility = False
        ThisWorkbook.SaveAs SaveAsPath & fileName, 51
        Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    End If
End Sub

No problem.

A couple of amendments. The below code will work with .xlsx,.xlsm,.xlsb and it switches compatability checking back on

Option Explicit


Sub SaveASFile()
    Dim Ans As String, fileName As String, SaveAsPath As String

    SaveAsPath = "C:\Users\pike\Desktop\backup\"
    '>>>>>>>  ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs fileName:="C:\Users\pike\Desktop\backup\"
''/// ".xls*" should work with .xlsx,.xlsm,.xlsb
    fileName = Replace(ThisWorkbook.Name, ".xls*", ".xls")
    Ans = MsgBox("Do you want to Save A Copy?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Confirm Please!")
    If Ans = vbYes Then
        Application.DisplayAlerts = False
        '>>>>>>>>>    Workbook.Settings.CheckCompatiliblity = False
        ThisWorkbook.CheckCompatibility = False
        ThisWorkbook.SaveAs SaveAsPath & fileName, 51
         ThisWorkbook.CheckCompatibility = True
        Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    End If
End Sub

OK Roy,
I am having trouble with the functionality of the saved copy.
I think I will need to keep it a XLSM file.
I tried to tinker with the code to leave it as the same file type.....    :(   but no dice.
Wish I was better at this stuff.
 And what if I wanted to rename the copy, is that doable??

Thanks so Much Roy
Chris

The ideas, and logic behind the VBA can translate easily to APP development.
I have designed some pretty cool programs from EE help, that do a great job on site...But the logic behind them can be made into apps for sure.
