Hi

The code below takes several sheets in a Workbook and saves each sheets as its own Workbook. It saves the workbooks in the same directory that the source wookbook is saved. But Id like to prompt the user once to select a folder where all the workbooks will be saved. How do I do this ?

Code:
[COLOR=#ff0000]'Maybe prompt the user here for the folder where the workbooks will be saved ???[/COLOR]


    For i = 1 To 10
    Sheets(i).Copy
    SaveDate = Format(Now(), "dd-mmm-yy  hhmm")
    
        Application.DisplayAlerts = False
        ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=Sheets(1).Name & " Holds Report - " & _
            SaveDate, AccessMode:=xlExclusive, ConflictResolution:=True
        Application.DisplayAlerts = True
        ActiveWorkbook.Close
        
        Workbooks("KPI Generator.xlsm").Activate
        
    Next i

Thank you in advance

How about
Code:
Sub musical()
   Dim Pth As String
   
   With Application.FileDialog(4)
      .AllowMultiSelect = False
     If .Show = -1 Then Pth = .SelectedItems(1)
   End With
   For i = 1 To 10
      Sheets(i).Copy
      SaveDate = Format(Now(), "dd-mmm-yy  hhmm")
   
       Application.DisplayAlerts = False
       ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs filename:=Pth & "\" & Sheets(1).Name & " Holds Report - " & _
           SaveDate, AccessMode:=xlExclusive, ConflictResolution:=True
       Application.DisplayAlerts = True
       ActiveWorkbook.Close
       
       Workbooks("KPI Generator.xlsm").Activate
       
   Next i
End Sub
