    How to ignore save as popup in file dialog?

    Hi, I'm using the below sub get a file path for a user form.
    I'm trying to find a way to stop the "Confirm Save As" message from appearing. I'm already saving later on in my program and don't need the confirmation appearing here. Automatically accepting the save as message would also work.
    (As best I can tell everything else about this sub is working properly.)

    I already tried setting EnableEvents and DisplayAlerts to false, neither of which worked. I assume this is because the confirmation message is coming from the file dialog instead of directly from Excel.

    Thanks in advance.

    enumerations is part of excel. built in. can not stop it. unless you good hacker. it not worth the time

    never heard of anyone being able to automatic click dialog built in. there workarounds though. but that take lots of code.

    Use msoFileDialogFolderPicker instead of msoFileDialogSaveAs.

    You have misunderstood the question and in any case your post does not contribute to a solution.

    I'd suggest Application.GetSaveAsFileName if you don't actually want to save at this point.

    Application.GetSaveAsFileName worked perfectly. Thank you!
