Hi Deborah,

You’ll need to be the form developer in order to create a Save As button.

Excellent tutorial!  It’s about 10 minutes long though, so make sure you have time to watch the whole thing.

This was very informative and good explanation.  Easy also to do. I want to go a step further and have the SaveAs button direct the form to the user’s desktop.  Is that possible?
