Sorry guys, I have done a quick search but didn't find an answer . .

How do I disable save as in a workbook ? I dont want the file saved with a different filename because of extrernal links.

Cheers
Bob

Put this in a module then run this:

Sub disblesaveas()
CommandBars("File").Controls("Save As...").Enabled = False
End Sub
