Usage of Excel SaveAs Method

Hi all,

i want to use Excel.Workbook library as a saveAs but i couldn’t locate the where it should save just giving the name of the excel and saving in te documents.

My Code :

xlsWB.SaveAs(setFileName, XlFileFormat.xlWorkbookNormal)

NOT : xlsWB as an Excel.Workbook
setFileName as a String = “myExcel”

What a want is => setFileName = “C:\myExcel” when i do like this it gets me an error.
=> “exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation”

How can i set the location?

Thank you.

Hello @yigit.aybey

As per my understanding if you just provide the file path it may get saved to the folder path.
Its better to give the full path of the file to save it to the required folder.
