SaveAs Method

See Also   Example   Applies To

Saves a component or project to a given location using a new filename.


object.SaveAs (newfilename As String)

The SaveAs method syntax has these parts:

Part Description
object An object expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.
newfilename Required. A string expression specifying the new filename for the component to be saved.


If a new path name is given, it is used. Otherwise, the old path name is used. If the new filename is invalid or refers to a read-only file, an error occurs.

When a form is saved, newfilename specifies the new name of the form file itself. The .Frx file, if applicable, is saved automatically with an .Frx extension.

Note   Successfully invoking this method causes the associated events from the FileControl object to be invoked.
