Excel file save as PDF goes to different locations on OneDrive RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Afternon,

    I'm trying to find any help referring to Excel 2013 and OneDrive. I've got application which creating kind of report and then saving it as PDF to OneDrive location. The problem is that application is dropping copy of PDF file to default location (see code below) but also sometimes you can find same copy in different random folders on L: drive. I'm sure there is no other code which making copy to those locations. I was wandering if it could be a problem with connection to a server? Your help will be much appreciated. Regards

    ActiveSheet.ExportAsFixedFormat Type:=xlTypePDF, Filename:= _
        "L:\WW\Business Development\ARC South\Official's Report Templates\" & ActiveSheet.Range("GL42").Value & ".pdf" _
       , Quality:=xlQualityStandard, IncludeDocProperties:=True, IgnorePrintAreas _
       :=False, OpenAfterPublish:=False

  • Hello,

    Do you get copies in the Official's Report Templates subfolders?

    It looks like the following property value causes the issue:

    Try to check the actual value passed to the ExportAsFixedFormat method.

  • Thanks a lot for reply, I've got copies of those reports in Official's Report Templates subfolder, but for some reason macro is dropping another copy (not always) into different location e.g. somewhere in ARC South, outside of "Official's Report Templates" subfolder. Value in GL42 is only part of the name of the file and contains name of employee. That part seems to be fine, especially that macro is attaching that file to email from the same location (Official's Report Templates) later. No idea where could be a problem.

  • Try to add log statements to see what path is used each time the ExportAsFixedFormat method is called.

  • Hi Novacus,

    Could you reproduce that issue in the new file? If so, please share this sample file on the OneDrive.
