Macro Limiting Save As File Types


New Member

I have spent the majority of my day trying every applicable macro I could find on the Internet and altering it for my needs with no success. If anyone here could help me I would be so grateful!

I have an Excel file with which I want to limit the Save As option to 3 file types that the different users of this workbook use for different reasons. They are xlsm, xltm and pdf.

I have been able to get xlsm alone to work with a few of the macros I have found but I run into trouble when I try to add the other two file types.

Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks so much!

It might be good to post the code that you do have, so we can see it, and, maybe we can build off of it.

I am thinking maybe a BeforeSave event procedure VBA code that checks to see what they selected, and if it meets your criteria.
