[FONT=&quot]and the backup to:-
[/FONT]
H:\Asset\Backup

[FONT=&quot]I altered the path in your code to:-
Code:
[/FONT][/COLOR]  ThisWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="H:\Asset" & ThisWorkbook.Name[COLOR=#201F1E][FONT=&quot]
[/FONT][/COLOR]
    ThisWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="H:\Asset\Backup" & ThisWorkbook.Name[COLOR=#201F1E][FONT=&quot]
but although it goes through the motaions ( no erros received ) it does not work?

Code:
ThisWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="H:\Asset\" & ThisWorkbook.Name


    ThisWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="H:\Asset\Backup\" & ThisWorkbook.Name
