VBA Use Windows File Dialog Box to Create a Workbook

Hi

I'm working on a VBA application and would like to let the user create a new Workbook and choose where to save it using the well know Windows Dialog boxes. I can find examples of msoFileDialogFilePicker so select a file or another method for selecting a folder but couldn't see anything to actually save a new Workbook. Could someone point me in the right direction if they know.

Thanks
