    I'm having a problem here which I searched in forums and I tried to fix it based on what I learned yet no success. I need solution urgent so I might seek an answer in other forums as well. ( Cross post policy)

    I wanted to create a macro selects some part of my worksheet and saves it in to the defined directory with the file name in A1.
    A1 had the formula as the file name display. I thought it was the problem so I moved the formula to A2, added Copy-Paste Values action to the macro (copy to A1 again) But still the same problem. It gives me an error saying File Not saved.

    Here below is the code

    I would appreciate if anyone could point out the mistake....

    Sub PP()
    ' PP Macro
    ' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+P
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
    :=False, Transpose:=False
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Selection.ExportAsFixedFormat Type:=xlTypePDF, Filename:= _
    "C:\Users\Murat Erguden\Dropbox\PLANET\5STAR CHA\PAYROLL\2017\ & Range("A1").Value ".pdf" _
    , Quality:=xlQualityStandard, IncludeDocProperties:=True, IgnorePrintAreas _
    :=False, OpenAfterPublish:=True
    Application.WindowState = xlNormal
    End Sub
