You can use 'Display input dialog' to define it and use %UserInput% variable in the 'Close Excel' as well

Hi @lisha 

I believe the easiest way is the obvious one: 'Lauch Excel' with a blank document, then 'Close Excel' choosing 'Save document as'  before closing Excel. 

But I have to display the selected folder option and place the excel file on it..

Use 'Display select folder dialog' to select the folder you want, then use %SelectedFolder% variable into 'Close Excel' > 'Save document as' path..
