Macro command: SaveReport - syntax error

Macro command: SaveReport - syntax error

Macro command: SaveReport - syntax error

I want a macro to save the report as an excel file but when i test the macro, it tells me there's a syntax error on the SaveReport line.

My macro script is as follows:

Sub saveasexcel()
Dim Sitenm as string
Dim Filename as String
Dim Num as variant

Sitenm = Field("site")

Filename = "C:\Documents\UDA-"+Sitenm


SaveReport (Filename,Num)

End Sub

I've tried using:

SaveReport (Filename,2)

And I've tried using other data types for the variable "Num", but these only lead to a second error: "Type mismatch, parameter 1 in subprogram SaveReport"

What am I missing?

Any and all help greatly appreciated!

RE: Macro command: SaveReport - syntax error

SaveReport (Filename,Num)

You are using the function format of the command.  A function returns a value and needs a place to put it.  

Try this:

x = SaveReport (Filename,Num)

or the non function syntax:

SaveReport Filename,Num
