Any help greatly recieved.....

The below code saves a worksheet to PDF, but I want the file name to equal whats in Cell AF3

If someone could just help with what needs changing that would be great :)

Code:
 ActiveSheet.ExportAsFixedFormat Type:=xlTypePDF, Filename:= _
        "C:\Users\ph0301\Desktop\Sub Con Fab Prog - .pdf", Quality:=xlQualityStandard _
        , IncludeDocProperties:=True, IgnorePrintAreas:=False, OpenAfterPublish:= _
        True
End Sub
 

Excel Facts

What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.
