In advance, I appreciate any help or suggestions...

I have an Excel workbook called "PXImport" that is very simple, yet I encounter the SaveAs auto-recover dialog box appearing regularly with a generic name like "90FBE46L". This causes the entire workbook to stop executing.

PXImport is linked to a local data source that changes in real-time. PXImport is saved in 10 second intervals in order to save its current state so that several external workbooks can remotely link to PXImport.

The error is in the SaveData() function. This function is called every 10 seconds. The error Msg is: Method 'Save' of object '_Workbook' failed

It runs just fine about 98.5% of the time. Every once in a while everything will stop and I am greeted with the SaveAs box with a name like "90FBE46L". As you can imagine, this causes stability issues. I use ActiveWorkbook.Save inorder to keep the workbook current because I have remote books linked to this one. If I do not use ActiveWorkbook.Save, the book will not stay current for the remote books to link to.

Is there any better way of keeping Excel current for remotely linked books to link to other than using ActiveWorkbook.Save
