I'm looking for some help tweaking this code. I have data in an excel sheet and a Word template. It will fill in the template but when it goes to save it pops up and I have to manually save it. I want it to save and move on to the next line. Any help would be appreciated. The code I have so far is below.
Code:
Sub CreateWordDocuments()
Dim CustRow, CustCol, LastRow, TemplRow, DaysSince, FrDays, ToDays As Long
Dim DocLoc, TagName, TagValue, TemplName, FileName As String
Dim CurDt, LastAppDt As Date
Dim WordDoc, WordApp, OutApp, OutMail As Object
Dim WordContent As Word.Range
With Sheet1
  
  If .Range("B3").Value = Empty Then
    MsgBox "Please select a correct template from the drop down list"
    .Range("G3").Select
    Exit Sub
  End If
    TemplRow = .Range("B3").Value 'Set Template Row
    TemplName = .Range("G3").Value 'Set Template Name
    FrDays = .Range("L3").Value 'Set From Days
    ToDays = .Range("O3").Value 'Set To Days
    DocLoc = Sheet2.Range("F" & TemplRow).Value 'Word Document Filename
    
    'Open Word Template
    On Error Resume Next 'If Word is already running
    Set WordApp = GetObject("Word.Application")
    If Err.Number <> 0 Then
    'Launch a new instance of Word
    Err.Clear
    'On Error GoTo Error_Handler
    Set WordApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    WordApp.Visible = True 'Make the application visible to the user
    End If
    
    
    LastRow = .Range("E9999").End(xlUp).Row  'Determine Last Row in Table
        For CustRow = 8 To LastRow
                DaysSince = .Range("o" & CustRow).Value
                If TemplName <> .Range("O" & CustRow).Value And DaysSince >= FrDays And DaysSince <= ToDays Then
                                Set WordDoc = WordApp.Documents.Open(FileName:=DocLoc, ReadOnly:=False) 'Open Template
                                For CustCol = 3 To 13 'Move Through 9 Columns
                                    TagName = .Cells(7, CustCol).Value 'Tag Name
                                    TagValue = .Cells(CustRow, CustCol).Value 'Tag Value

                                        .Text = TagName
                                        .Replacement.Text = TagValue
                                        .Wrap = wdFindContinue
                                        .Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll 'Find & Replace all instances

What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.

I have a similar Code within an excel workbook.

Code:
[FONT=Verdana,Arial,Tahoma,Calibri,Geneva,sans-serif]ActiveSheet.ExportAsFixedFormat _
      Type:=xlTypePDF, _
      Filename:=ActiveWorkbook.FullName & " - " & TheDate & " - " & TheAssemblyNumber & "-" & TheAssemblyName & ".pdf", _
      Quality:=xlQualityStandard, _
      IncludeDocProperties:=True, _
      IgnorePrintAreas:=False, _
      OpenAfterPublish:=False[/FONT]
[Code\]
I think the trick is OpenAfterPublish

If I put the OpenAfterPublish line it gives an error. I've been fighting with this for days now. I can't get it to work.

When it goes to save the PDF the box comes up to say where to save it and I have to click SAVE. I can't get it to just save without having to click the SAVE button
