Hi,
Can anyone tell me why the kill line is not working in this code?
the error is runtime error 53
file not found

MyPath = ActiveWorkbook.Path
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=MyPath & MyName
ActiveWorkbook.SendMail Recipients:="billy.cameron@networkrail.co.uk", Subject:="TS Submittal " & trimName
ActiveWorkbook.Close
Kill "MyName.xls"
 

Excel Facts

Create a Pivot Table on a Map
If your data has zip codes, postal codes, or city names, select the data and use Insert, 3D Map. (Found to right of chart icons).
Is the file actually called "MyName.xls" or is MyName simply the variable that holds the name of the file?

If it isn't called "MyName.xls" it won't work.

Regards

Richard

If MyPath = c:\temp, you are saving your file as c:\tempMyName.xls

First, you need to add a backslash between the path and the name.

Second, you need to kill the file with a full path:
Code:
MyPath = ActiveWorkbook.Path 
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=MyPath & "\" & MyName 
ActiveWorkbook.SendMail Recipients:="billy.cameron@networkrail.co.uk", Subject:="TS Submittal " & trimName 
ActiveWorkbook.Close 
Kill MyPath & "\" & MyName
