Type Description

If the document is loaded from a file, the WorkbookSaveOptions.CurrentFileName and WorkbookSaveOptions.CurrentFormat properties are set to the file name and format of the original document. The SaveDocument method saves a document as a file with the name taken from the CurrentFileName property in the format specified by the CurrentFormat property.

If the CurrentFileName property is empty or the CurrentFormat property equals the DocumentFormat.Undefined value, the SaveDocument method displays the Save As dialog box. This allows users to browse folders and specify a filename and format to which to save the document.
