I get "compile Error" "Syntax Error" when i run the macro in the worksheet. Any help here?

VBA Code:
Sub FileNameAsCellContent()
Dim FileName As String
Dim Path As String
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Path = "C:\test\"
FileName = Range("E3").Value & ".xlsx"
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Path&FileName,xlOpenXMLWorkbook
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
ActiveWorkbook.Close
End Sub

You need a space before and after the & sign like
VBA Code:
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Path & FileName,xlOpenXMLWorkbook
I would also advise using words like Path & FileName for variables as they are VBA keywords & can cause problems.

cell E3 contains customer name
I was wanting to the see EXACT value you have in there, to make sure that you do not have any illegal values.
There are restrictions regarding which characters that can be used in file names. So I was hoping to see your actual value.

If Fluff's response does not get rid of all your errors, please post that value for us.
