Hello i want to create a macro in excel 2013 that will save as pdf file with the current date as a name.Thank you very much

Dear Dimitris,

Please use the below macro. It should give the desired results

Sub command1_click()
   Dim flpth As String
   flname = Format(Date, "mmm-dd-yyyy")
   flpth = ThisWorkbook.Path & "\" & flname
   ActiveSheet.ExportAsFixedFormat _
   Type:=xlTypePDF, _
   Filename:=flpth, _
   Quality:=xlQualityStandard, _
   IncludeDocProperties:=True, _
   IgnorePrintAreas:=False, _
End Sub

Please note: You'll need to take care and make sure that the print formatting, alignment of text, page setup etc are done properly for your file, else the pdf output may not appear properly.

Hope this helps,
