Kathy asks "I am trying to create a macro for a Button to: exit a worksheet, without saving (it is a Read-only template file), and close Excel...the end users are not comfortable with PC use, so the fewer choices left to them the better...

I'm relatively new at macros and am finding it difficult to locate complete help. Trying to record this resulted in knocking me out of the workbook."

Try this code:

Sub CloseExcel()
ActiveWorkbook.Saved = True
End Sub

You can change the

ActiveWorkbook.Saved = True


ActiveWorkbook.Close SaveChanges:=False
