Save a selected range as script


New Member

it is obvious I do not know what I am doing. What I am trying to accomplish is by pressing the button, Range A1:A12 on sheet called DATA_1 which I set it to be as "ssheet2" be saved on desktop as DATA_1.scr

but executing this macro will change my workbook name to DATA_1. Could anyone please help?

Also how can I ask the saved script file to be on any user desktop and not particular to mine, so I could share the excel file to different users and by executing the macro, the DATA_1.scr generates on their desktop. is there a generic way to formulate that?

Also is there a way to overwrite if there are existing files with the same name on anyone`s desktop without asking any question - if exists just overwrite.

Private Sub bt2_Click() Set ssheet2 = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("DATA_1")
ssheet2.SaveAs Filename:="C:\Users\sambuddy\Desktop\DATA_1.scr", _
FileFormat:=xlUnicodeText, CreateBackup:=False

End Sub
