View Full Version : Bear with me, I'm new to VBA...

2004-09-03, 11:32 AM

Bare with me, I'm new to VBA so I may have several very basic questions in the next few weeks.

I am using AutoCAD 2004.

Here is the most basic of questions. I've looked through several resources and they describe saving an application the same:

1) "Click on the FILE menu and select SAVE. "
2) "If the Application has not been save yet, the SAVE AS dialog box will appear..."

Well, I do not get the SAVE AS dialog box. When I click the File menu, the only save option I have is SAVE <filename.DWG>. I don't have an option to save my application as <filename.DVB>.

Obviously, my question is "How do I save my application as <filename.DVB>?

Thanks for your assistance and patience.

use the VBA Manager to load unload and saveas

That operation should be performed from the VBAIDE (Visual Basic for Application Integrated Development Environment) window.

I had been trying that, I seem to have remember that from some coaching from a long time ago.

I did just successfully save an application. It seems I have to high-lite the Project within the Project Explorer Window prior to clicking the FILE menu.

It's the simple things that are bothersome!!!

If you don't mind me asking, Is there a dramatic difference between getting to the Visual Basic Editor by VBAMAN or VBAIDE except an extra click?

Just the number of clicks. I prefer Alt+F11, standard for most windows apps. You can also customize your keboard shortcuts to use any key. I used to use just F12, but got a new machine and just havn't done it yet.
