Preventing a Workbook From Being Saved as Another Name. See Also:  Stop Do You Want To Save Changes and Prevent Saving As

The code below can be used to stop any users saving a Workbook as another name, but will allow the Workbook to be save to another location. The code must be placed in the Private Module of the Workbook Object (ThisWorkbook). The fastest way to get there is to right click on the Excel icon, top left next to File and select View Code. It is in here you should place the code below and then save the Workbook. So long as the Workbook is opened with macros enabled the code will fire anytime any user tries to use Save As.

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave _

              (ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)

    Dim NamePath As String

    Dim strName As String

    Dim lFind As Long

    If SaveAsUI = True Then

      Cancel = True

        With Application

                .EnableEvents = False

     NamePath = .GetSaveAsFilename

     strName = Mid(NamePath, InStrRev(NamePath, "\", -1, vbTextCompare) + 1, 256)

            If NamePath = "False" Then

                   .EnableEvents = True

                Exit Sub

            ElseIf strName <> Me.Name Then

                MsgBox "You cannot save as another name"

                    .EnableEvents = True

                Exit Sub


              Me.SaveAs NamePath

                 .EnableEvents = True

            End If

        End With

    End If

End Sub
