Hi all. I need to autosave a backup copy of a critical file to another location. I cannot use the default location even though the file name clearly states BACKUP and has warning messages when opened. For some reason users will still try to use those files. I have looked at file format enumerations but don't see one for backup files .XLK. How would I convert the following to use .XLK and what FileFormat?

Code:
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="R:\All\Level2\BACKUP\" & Nameit & ".xlsm", FileFormat:= _
        xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled, CreateBackup:=True

Paste this into a Routine Module :

Code:
Option Explicit


Sub SaveMyWorkbook()
         
    Dim strPath As String
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    strPath = "C:\Users\My\Desktop\Backup.xlk"
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=strPath
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
     
End Sub
