Good morning all!
I originally posted this query on the Developer board, as I thought it was a
problem with my code, but now I'm not so sure.
I have a workbook with a macro that runs a Save As within a loop,
test data files.
I was finding that for every new file I created, and additional file with a
filename comprisiong eight alphanumeric characters and no file extenson was
created in the same folder.
Thinking that the workbook might be corrupted, I created a new workbook
(with NO copying/pasting from the original - everything types in from
scratch) , created new code modules and copied the code first into Notepad,
then into the new workbook.
The problem still occurred.
Finally, I noticed that it even happened when I
did a simple File Save As
from the menu, so I'm fairly certain it isn't my code that's causing the
Could my Excel document template be corrupted in some way?
Can anybody think of any tests or
checks I could carry out on my workbook to
look for corruptions that might be causing these additional files to be
creaed? I'm assuming that they're TEMP files that are being created, but not
deleted, during the Save As process.
Yours in desperation, and thanks in advance
