I have an XL Purchase Order sheet that customer's can fill only Unlocked cells.

At the end he must do Save or Save AS and send it to me by Email.

At the moment he's doing Save or Save As, I would like to execute something.

To test it I wrote that little macro :

Sub macro1()
'
' Macro1 Macro
' Macro recorded 18/11/2009 by administrator
'
MsgBox ("macro1")
'
End Sub


Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
MsgBox ("BeforeSave")
End Sub


If I'm doing Save or Save no Msg appear.. Why ?<M Why Save) the during appear MSG no ( working not is As Save or doing p ?<>

THANK YOU for your help. <!-- / message --><!-- BEGIN TEMPLATE: ad_showthread_firstpost_sig --><!-- END TEMPLATE: ad_showthread_firstpost_sig -->

Is the BeforeSave code on the ThisWorkbook page of the workbook's VBA project?

All workbook level event code needs to place on there to execute.

Hello Domski,

First, with macro I'm Dummmmmmy.

The only think that I have done is :

1- Open my Purchase Order Xl sheet
2- Create a new Macro (Macro in = This Workbook) and include the code into it.
3- Save everythings
4- Close everythings
5- Reopen my Purchase Order Sheet and tried to execute my Save procedure.

Thanks

The code you have recorded will have been placed in a Module within the Workbook's VBA project. Modules are the normal place to put code that you want to execute yourself.

Event code that runs automatically needs to be placed in a specific place depending on the type of event that you want to trigger.

The Workbook_BeforeSave code that you quoted works at the Workbook level and therefore needs to be placed in the ThisWorkbook code page of the VBA Project.

This gives a good overview of event codes if you are interested: http://www.cpearson.com/excel/Events.aspx

Thanks Domski,

I'm in VBA Project and add the BeforeSave event.

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, _
Cancel As Boolean)
MsgBox ("Do you really want to save the workbook?")

End Sub

That event switch automatically into General and not into Worksheet.

I save everything and tried to save the xl sheet and the beforesave event not work..

You have to put the code on the ThisWorkbook code page. It should then show you a message each time you select Save, it won't do anything else.
