Application.WorkbookAfterSave event (Excel)

Occurs after the workbook is saved.


In Office 365, Excel supports AutoSave, which enables the user's edits to be saved automatically and continuously. For more information, see How AutoSave impacts add-ins and macros to ensure that running code in response to the WorkbookAfterSave event functions as intended when AutoSave is enabled.

The following code example displays a message box if the workbook was successfully saved. This code must be placed in a class module, and an instance of that class must be correctly initialized.

Private Sub App_WorkbookAfterSave(ByVal Wb As Workbook, _ 
 ByVal Success As Boolean) 
If Success Then 
 MsgBox ("The " & Wb.Name & " workbook was successfully saved.") 
End If 
End Sub
