Hi,

is it possible to write a code to Excel VBA that saves a PowerPoint presentation to SharePoint with a dynamic name (changes according to a specific cell value) and overwrites the existing file, if there is one? This is my code now, and it doesn't work.

Application.DisplayAlerts = False

Dim path, newfname, frmt As String
path = "https:\\docs.webpage.com\sites\sales" '<-- the folder
newfname = wsdata.Range("L3") '<-- cell that the file name comes from
frmt = VBA.Right(ppt_pres.Name, 4) '<-- i think this is the fileformat pptx

If newfname <> False Then

If Not Dir(newfname) <> "" Then
ppt_pres.SaveAs Filename:=newfname
Else
On Error Resume Next

If Err.Number = 1004 Then
On Error GoTo 0
Else
ppt_pres.SaveAs Filename:=mypath & newfname & frmt & ".pptx", _
FileFormat:=ppSaveAsOpenXMLPresentation, _

End If
End If
End If

Application.DisplayAlerts = True

should suppress the warning.

Perhaps use
Code:
On Error Resume Next
KILL mypath & newfname & frmt & ".pptx"
On Error GoTo 0
just prior to the save statement
