Prompt user if file save is cancelled

I have a routine which prompts the user to choose a folder to save an embedded Word document as PDF;

Code:
FilePath = Application.GetSaveAsFilename(InitialFileName:=File121, FileFilter:="PDF Files (*.pdf), *.pdf", Title:="Select Folder to save")
It works fine, except if the user clicks cancel in which case it doesn't save the file but carries on with the rest of the procedure, which is not what I want so I need to incorporate a method to do the following if they click cancel;

1) Prompt asking if they want to cancel - if yes then exit sub
2) If they choose to try again then show the GetSaveAsFilename dialog again (then repeat the process)

What I'm trying to do essentially is come up with a way that they either keep going back to choose a folder to save or exit the routine.

Hope I've made sense!

Hi,
try following & see if does what you want

Code:
Dim FilePath As Variant


Do
    FilePath = Application.GetSaveAsFilename(InitialFileName:=File121, FileFilter:="PDF Files (*.pdf), *.pdf", Title:="Select Folder to save")
    If FilePath = False Then If MsgBox("Do You Want To Cancel?", 36, "Cancel") = vbYes Then Exit Sub
Loop Until VarType(FilePath) <> vbBoolean


'rest of code

This should work

Code:
strFilePath = vbNullString

Do While strFilePath = vbNullString
    strFilePath = Application.GetSaveAsFilename(InitialFileName:=File121, FileFilter:="PDF Files (*.pdf), *.pdf", Title:="Select Folder to save")

    If strFilePath = "False" Then
        If MsgBox("Cancel operation", vbRetryCancel + vbDefaultButton2) = vbCancel Then
            Exit Sub
        Else
            strFilePath = vbNullString
        End If
    End If
Loop
