I am trying to use the code below to send mail to a client and save the sheet as both a PDF & an xslm file

The PDF works fine an it generates the email perfectly, but I get an error of either when it gets to the lines from FileName2 below to create the xlsm file:
Run time error 1004 - Method 'SaveAs' of object _workbook failed or the file cannot be saved with an xslm extension

Code:
Sub MailTo()
Dim EmailSubject As String
Dim EmailSignature As String
Dim PDFFile As String
Dim Email_To As String
Dim FileName As String
Dim FileName2 As String
Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object
Dim AlwaysOverwritePDF As Boolean
Dim OverwritePDF As VbMsgBoxResult
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    FileName = Sheets("Quotation").Range("A4").Value
    PDFFile = Environ$("userprofile") & "\OneDrive\MJM Services\2.0 Quotations\pdf Copy\" & FileName & ".pdf"
    Email_To = Sheets("Quotation").Range("C4").Value
    ActiveSheet.ExportAsFixedFormat Type:=xlTypePDF, FileName:=FileName, _
    Quality:=xlQualityStandard, IncludeDocProperties:=True, _
    IgnorePrintAreas:=False, OpenAfterPublish:=False
    AlwaysOverwritePDF = False
    Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)
    With OutMail
        .To = Sheets("Quotation").Range("C4").Value
        .Subject = " Quotation Attached "
        .Body = "Many thanks for your request for a quotation" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & "Please find attached quotation for work detailed" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & "Regards" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & "Matt" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & "M J Mayne Services"
        .attachments.Add PDFFile
        .Display
    End With
    ActiveSheet.Copy
    FileName2 = Environ$("userprofile") & "\OneDrive\MJM Services\2.0 Quotations\xlsm Copy\" & FileName2 & ".xlsm"
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs FileName2, FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Really hope you experts can solve this because it is driving me nuts

Many thanks for looking

FileName2 = Environ$("userprofile") & "\OneDrive\MJM Services\2.0 Quotations\xlsm Copy\" & FileName2 & ".xlsm"
FileName2 does not have a value, should the part in blue be FileName?
