VBA Save As with User prompted to select folder path

I have a macro that uses the GetSaveAsFilename which is fine except it makes the user type in the file name to save the file. The issue is people mistype the file name which messes up other macros down the line. The file name never changes but the folder location does so the user needs to be able to select the folder to save the file in but the file name will always be "Device Complianc.xlsx". One other thing to note the file they are doing a Save As to has the original format as .xls.

Here is the current code:
Sub sbSaveExcelDialog()
Dim IntialName As String
Dim sFileSaveName As Variant
IntialName = "Device Compliance"
sFileSaveName = Application.GetSaveAsFilename(InitialFileName:=InitialName, fileFilter:="Excel Files (*.xlsx), *.xlsx")
If sFileSaveName <> False Then
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs sFileSaveName
End If
End Sub

How about
Code:
Sub sbSaveExcelDialog()
   Dim Fldr As String

   With Application.FileDialog(4)
      .AllowMultiSelect = False
      If .Show <> -1 Then Exit Sub
      Fldr = .SelectedItems(1)
   End With

   ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Fldr & "\Device Compliance.xlsx", 51

End Sub

For whatever reason, it does not like using a variable for the Initial Name.
Code:
Sub sbSaveExcelDialog()
 Dim IntialName As String
 Dim sFileSaveName As Variant
 'IntialName = "Device Compliance.xlsx"
 sFileSaveName = Application.GetSaveAsFilename("Device Compliance.xlsx", "Excel Files (*.xlsx), *.xlsx")
     If sFileSaveName <> False Then
         ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs sFileSaveName
     End If
 End Sub
This displayed the file name as the Initial Name.
