Hi,

ActiveDocument.Variables("vDate")

Refers to an actual variable that has to be created before getting a value. Go to the Settings menu, Variable Overview and Add a new one and call it vDate. Then the macro will work.

You have to get the variable value, so use:

XLDoc.SaveAs "c:\Qlikview\Claro"& ActiveDocument.Variables("vDate").GetContent.String &".xls"
