Workbook.Save Method (Excel)
Published: July 16, 2012
Saves changes to the specified workbook.
This example saves the active workbook.
This example saves all open workbooks and then closes Microsoft Excel.
This example uses the BeforeSave event to verify that certain cells contain data before the workbook can be saved. The workbook cannot be saved until there is data in each of the following cells: D5, D7, D9, D11, D13, and D15.
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean) 'If the six specified cells do not contain data, then display a message box with an error 'and cancel the attempt to save. If WorksheetFunction.CountA(Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("D5,D7,D9,D11,D13, D15")) < 6 Then MsgBox "Workbook will not be saved unless" & vbCrLf & _ "All required fields have been filled in!" Cancel = True End If End Sub
