Excel Buffer Functions (Table 370)

Does anyone have a list of the functions that are available in the Excel Buffer table. I'm speaking of the functions associated with all of the Xl* globals. I'm specifically looking for a "Save As" function so that I can automate saving the file in a certain format.

Many thanks in advance!!

    Thank you for the reply! You took an interesting approach to saving the file by using the FileManagement codeunit.

    Specifically what I am wanting to do is save the Excel file in a specified location (which I could do using your functionality) but in a specified format - such as "Excel 2007" or "Excel 2010" instead of the default format.

    I'm trying to find out if anyone has a list of the embedded functions that are included in the Microsoft .NET globals that are included in the Excel Buffer table. In the older versions, you could create your own C/AL functions by attaching to the (well documented) libraries that were included in the table. Is that still possible?

    Again, MANY thanks!!
