Save as without the dialog box


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to save a Word or Excel document without using the dialogue box?


I want to name a Word or Excel file from information in a clipboard without having to go to "File", "Save As" and then putting the file in a certain location. The location of the file(after it is saved)will be based on parameters loaded in from the clipboard.


Any ideas?

I can't tell you how but I have seen commands for this in VBA macros that grab the contents of the clipboard and stuff it in a variable.


Another thought is that if the file you're working from could be named c:\temp.doc or something generic like that you could do a CTRL+S and then rename/move-copy the file with ME when it becomes ready.
