Optional Parameters

The following code example checks the value of the FileFormat property to determine whether the workbook is a normal workbook. If the workbook is a normal workbook, then the example calls the SaveAs method to resave the workbook as an XML spreadsheet with the name XMLCopy.xls in the path specified by the Path property.

private void WorkbookSaveAs()
    if (this.FileFormat == Excel.XlFileFormat.xlWorkbookNormal)
        this.SaveAs(this.Path + @"\XMLCopy.xls",
            Excel.XlFileFormat.xlXMLSpreadsheet, missing, missing,
            false, false, Excel.XlSaveAsAccessMode.xlNoChange,
            missing, missing, missing, missing, missing);
