Type: System.Object

The name of the saved file. You can include a full path; if you do not, Microsoft Office Excel saves the file in the current folder.

Type: System.Object

A case-sensitive password for the workbook. If this argument is omitted, you can unprotect the workbook without using a password. Otherwise, you must specify the password to unprotect the workbook.

Type: System.Object

The write-reservation password for this file. If a file is saved with the password and the password is not supplied when the file is opened, the file is opened read-only.

Type: System.Object

true to display a message when the file is opened, recommending that the file be opened read-only.

Type: System.Object

true to create a backup file.

Type: System.Object

The password to be used to protect the file for sharing.

Use strong passwords that combine uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. Weak passwords do not mix these elements. For example, "Y6dh!et5" is a strong password, but "House27" is a weak password. Use a strong password that you can remember so that you do not have to write it down.
