Below is part of my script. My defult drive in excel is H:\ which is a network drive. My local drive is C:\ and that is where i'm trying to save this file C:\test\. Why is it not doing so and keeps saving to H:?

If there is nothing wrong let me know so that I can stop pulling out my hair and blame it on the PC, although I did try it on two different ones.

Code:
 Range("A65000").End(xlUp).Select
  
    Selection.Copy
    Worksheets("Variables").Visible = True
    Sheets("Variables").Select
    Range("A2").Select
    ActiveSheet.Paste
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Selection.TextToColumns Destination:=Range("A2"), DataType:=xlDelimited, _
        TextQualifier:=xlDoubleQuote, ConsecutiveDelimiter:=False, Tab:=False, _
        Semicolon:=False, Comma:=False, Space:=False, Other:=True, OtherChar _
        :="/", FieldInfo:=Array(Array(1, 1), Array(2, 1), Array(3, 1)), _
        TrailingMinusNumbers:=True
        Range("E2").Select
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=RC[-4]&"".""&RC[-3]&"".""&RC[-2]"
    ChDir "C:\Test"
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=Range("e2").Value & ".xls", FileFormat:=xlNormal, _
        Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, _
        CreateBackup:=False
        'MsgBox ("You workbook was saved in the the following locatin " & "C:\Test" & "\" & Range("e2").Value & ".xls!")
        msg = msg & vbCrLf & "Your workbook was saved in the the following locatin " & "C:\Test" & "\" & Range("e2").Value & ".xls!"
                MsgBox msg, vbInformation, "VeoliaES - Important!!!!"
        
  
  Worksheets("working").Visible = False
  Worksheets("Variables").Visible = False
  

End Sub

Where are you specifying the path when saving?

If you don't specify the path then the file will probably be saved in the active directory.

Yes I saw that eventually.

I suggest that rather than trying to use ChDir, incorporate C:\Test when you save.
Code:
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="C:\Test\" & Range("e2").Value & ".xls"
