How to save file with date and time in Excel?
When we work on a workbook, sometimes, we need to add the current date and time when we save the file. Maybe, you can type the date and time after the file name into the Save As dialog, but, here, I can introduce you an easy trick to auto deal with this job.
Except typing the date and time manually, the following VBA code can help you to add the current date and time to the filename automatically. Please do with following steps:
1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.
2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module Window.
VBA code: Auto add date and time to file name
Sub filesave() 'Update 20141111 ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs ("C:\Users\dt\Desktop\my information\nov-kte-data " & Format(Now(), "DD-MMM-YYYY hh mm AMPM") & ".xlsx") End Sub
3. And then press F5 key to run this code, the current date and time has been added after your active workbook name, see screenshot:
Note: In the above code, you need to change the file path and name to your need.
