I have a spreadsheet that I use as a 1099 employee. My income changes from week to week and I usually save these spreadsheet and save them (NAME THEM) based on DD/MM and $ amount.

Example: 2-12 - 3-13 $3289.xlsx

The $3289 changes from week to week and I would like that automatically be inserted in the saved file name when I go to save my new file each pay period.

Can I do this with Excel?
