Method 'Saveas of object'_workbook' failed when trying to save workbook

I'm trying to save  a workbook in share mode.  I have this code but I'm getting a Method 'Saveas of object'_workbook' failed.  Here is the code:

Sub Save_Shared_Workbook()
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=" I:\Purch\TTE\CTF\Lupe\CTF Shortage Report Tool" & Format(Date, "MM-DD") & ".x_lsx", FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbook, CreateBackup:=False, AccessMode:=xlShared

End Sub

Is the file extension x_lsx you are using a typo?
LUIS FREUNDAuthor Commented:
I've changed that to.xlsx.

And I still get the error message
Lee W, MVPTechnology and Business Process AdvisorCommented:
Verify the path is accurate and that the file name does not contain invalid characters such as "\" or "/".

When you have problems like this best to put the file name in a variable and popup a message with that EXACT file name so you can confirm it's ok.  For example:
Sub Save_Shared_Workbook()
     TargetFileName = " I:\Purch\TTE\CTF\Lupe\CTF Shortage Report Tool" & Format(Date, "MM-DD") & ".x_lsx"
     msgbox TargetFileName   'Just for debugging purposes - remove once you've found the problem.
     ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= TargetFileName, FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbook, CreateBackup:=False, AccessMode:=xlShared

End Sub

Declare two string variables, one to hold the Path and another to hold the file name. That way it's easy to track if something goes wrong.

Please try this and see if that works for you...
Sub Save_Shared_Workbook()
Dim strPath As String, strFileName As String

strPath = "I:\Purch\TTE\CTF\Lupe\"
strFileName = "CTF Shortage Report Tool" & Format(Date, "MM-DD") & ".xlsx"

If Right(strPath, 1) <> "\" Then strPath = strPath & "\"

If Dir(strPath) = "" Then
    MsgBox "The Path " & strPath & " is not valid. Make sure that the Path exists.", vbCritical
    Exit Sub
End If

Application.DisplayAlerts = False
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=strPath & strFileName, FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbook, CreateBackup:=False, AccessMode:=xlShared

End Sub
