Save in location button

Hello all

This is how my button is programmed...


Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
    Me.TextBox1.Text = Date
End Sub

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    MyPath = "\\tprc1fanp001\shared\Enforcement, Enquiry & Complaints\Manual
Payment History\"                 'Set the Path
    MyFileName = "Date" & Me.TextBox1.Text & ".xls"    'Create the File Name
    MySaveString = MyPath & MyFileName   'String the two together

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=MySaveString, FileFormat:= _
    xlNormal, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", _
    ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, CreateBackup:=False
End Sub

This is my error message:

Run Time Error '1004':
Microsoft Excel cannot access the file '\\tprc1fanp001\shared\Enforcement,
Enquiry & Complaints\Manual Payment History\Date06\02' There are several
possible reasons:
-The file name or path name does not exist
-The file you're trying to open is being used by another program.

Close the document in the other program, and try again

End or Debug


Why is file attempting to save as Date06\02?

Thank you in advanced

A slash is not a valid file name character.  I'd suggest you generate the
date string with something like this:

Hyphens and underscores are valid.  Underscores get hidden if hyperlinks
are involved.   But would certainly suggest using  four digit year and
placing  year before month before day of month,  so you can sort
on filename when looking at a directory.     i.e.
      format(now(),"yyyy-mm-dd")    -or-

FileNotFound returned by Bitmap::Save() when saving to stream
I have a little chunk of code which is supposed to take a bitmap image and save its PNG encoding into a block of memory. The problem is, I keep getting a FileNotFound error back from Save().

Here's the code (more or less) in question; there really shouldn't be much to it, I would have thought: /* Allocate an IStream object to write the data into a global memory block.

Handling of savings accounts and 401k accounts in the budget
I noticed that Money treats money that I contribute to a 401k account or transfer to a savings account as an expense. Basically, the more I contribute, the worse my budget looks. Is there a way to prevent this from happening? Right now, I exclude transfers to my savings account from the budget and it solves the problem, however, I shouldn't have to manually do this each time. For 401k contributions, I cannot find a way to do this. Why does it show up as "an expense" (what Category???) instead of something like Transfer Out of Budget Accounts? The 401k cash account sh...

Outlook 2k3 no dial location

When working offline and pressing F9 the send/receive dialog box comes up correctly. It is followed by the logon dialog box as it should. The problem is that the logon dialog box is missing the list boxes for the phone number to dial as well as the dial location. I haven't seen anything that would turn this feature on or off.

Daylight Savings Time #2
In regards to DST or better yet XDST, in my windows 2003 domain environment I have the servers and workstations syncing their clock with one of my DCs. The statement has been presented here that since this is the case we should not have to worry about clocks being off by one hour. I do not get the warm and fuzzy with this statement. I feel that if it were that easy it would have been documented as a solution by now. Maybe they are right and I am wrong. Could you give me an explanation why so or why not?

My form copies a file from one locatin, prompts the user to create a new name for the file, then saves the file to another location. is there an easy way to ensure the user has entered a valid file name (e.g. did not use '/' or "^" or anything like that) so the save does not fail? OR, would it be easier to some how set up error handling so that if the save fails for that reason, i can prompt the user to try again. How would i do either of these things?
