Hello all,

I have a managed to find and modify some VBA that will locate as "Save As" window and then paste a file location inside it. My challenge, is that once time expires, a message box pops up prompting a stop or retry. What I am trying to do is instead of a message box, change a few things on my userform, then exit the loop, this would then allow the user to choose to retry or go to a different task via various command buttons. My code to exit this part is flawed, and seems to run without end.

Here is the function code with the message box:
VBA Code:
Sub ShowMeTheFile1x()

    Const MAX_WAIT_SECS As Long = 25
    Const WAIT_SECS As Long = 5

    Dim hWnd As Long
    Dim ans As VbMsgBoxResult
    Dim endTime As Single
  
    endTime = Timer + MAX_WAIT_SECS
    Sheets("DAILY01").Select
    Range("B20").Select
    Selection.Copy
    Do
        hWnd = FindWindow(vbNullString, "Save As")
        If hWnd > 0 Then
            SetForegroundWindow hWnd
            Application.SendKeys ("^v")
            Application.SendKeys ("~")
            Exit Do
        End If
        If Timer > endTime Then
            Exit Do
            ans = MsgBox("Window not found, try again?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo)
            If ans = vbYes Then
                endTime = Timer + MAX_WAIT_SECS
            Else
                Exit Do
            End If
        Else
            PauseMacro WAIT_SECS
        End If
    Loop

End Sub
Here is the code as I am trying (unsuccessfully) to modify it:
VBA Code:
Sub ShowMeTheFile1x()

    Const MAX_WAIT_SECS As Long = 25
    Const WAIT_SECS As Long = 5

    Dim hWnd As Long
    Dim ans As VbMsgBoxResult
    Dim endTime As Single
  
    endTime = Timer + MAX_WAIT_SECS
    Sheets("DAILY01").Select
    Range("B20").Select
    Selection.Copy
    Do
        hWnd = FindWindow(vbNullString, "Save As")
        If hWnd > 0 Then
            SetForegroundWindow hWnd
            Application.SendKeys ("^v")
            Application.SendKeys ("~")
            Exit Do
        End If
        If Timer > endTime Then
            Exit Do
            ans = MsgBox("Window not found, try again?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo)
            If ans = vbYes Then
                endTime = Timer + MAX_WAIT_SECS
            Else
                Exit Do
            End If
        Else
            PauseMacro WAIT_SECS
        End If
    Loop

End Sub
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated
