Hello,

I have been assigned the task of developing a excel document that whole office will use. The user will click a button and the macro will export the file as a PDF to a shared folder. I wrote this code and tested this code using excel 2010. People that have excel 2007 where getting an error message saying "Run Time Error 1004 Document not saved. This document may be open, or an error may have been encountered when saving." I looked into the problem a little bit and found that excel 2007 needed an add-in update, so I installed it on their computers. I also checked to see if they have adobe on their computers and they do. They are still having the problem and I am unsure of what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Here is my code

'Save As New File
Worksheets("Input Data").Visible=True
folder=Sheets("Input Data").Range("location").Value
MyTime=Time
Sheets("Input Data").Select
Range("G2").Value=MyTime
strFileName=folder & "Material Request- "& Sheets ("Input data").Range("name").Value& "_"&Sheets("Input data").Range("date").Value&""&Sheets("Input data").Range("time").Value& ".pdf"
Sheets("Material Request").select
ActiveSheet.ExportasFixedFormat Type:=xlTypePDF, FileName'OpenAfterPublish:=True
 

Excel Facts

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.

Apologizes this is the correct code

' Save as new file approved
Worksheets("Input data").Visible = True
folder = Sheets("Input data").Range("location_approved").Value
MyTime = Time
Sheets("Input data").Select
Range("G2").Value = MyTime
strFileName = folder & "Material Request - " & Sheets("Input data").Range("name").Value & "_" & Sheets("Input data").Range("date").Value & " " & Sheets("Input data").Range("time").Value '& ".pdf"
Sheets("Material Request").Select
Worksheets("Input data").Visible = False
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=strFileName

Why not just record the macro in Excel 2007? Doesn't look like you'd have to adjust much.

Also, you have...
Code:
ActiveSheet.ExportasFixedFormat Type:=xlTypePDF, FileName'OpenAfterPublish:=True

Doesn't look like the variable "FileName" is in your code... do you mean strFileName?
Might need to be:
Code:
, FileName:= strFileName

I tried to record it and no luck. I think it has something to do with the Filename but im not sure


' Define all variables
Dim strFileName As String
Dim folder As String
Dim member As Integer
Dim member_count As Integer
Dim member_name As String
Dim show As Variant
Dim MyTime As String

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False

'Creates new worksheet
Worksheets("Approval").Visible = True

'Save as new file
Worksheets("Input data").Visible = True
folder = Sheets("Input data").Range("location").Value
MyTime = Time
Sheets("Input data").Select
Range("G2").Value = MyTime
strFileName = folder & "Material Request - " & Sheets("Input data").Range("name").Value & "_" & Sheets("Input data").Range("date").Value & " " & Sheets("Input data").Range("time").Value & ".pdf"
Sheets("Material Request").Select
ActiveSheet.ExportAsFixedFormat Type:=xlTypePDF, Filename:=strFileName 'OpenAfterPublish:=True
