I am working on one macro that read drawing names from excel, opens it, do some modification. After that I would need to save and close active drawing. When I use expression acDoc.SaveAndClose(acDoc.Name)
I am getting g an error - drawing is busy. I can save the drawing use save as method without any problems but can save and close it. Do you know what could be an issue? Probably I have to release that drawing or make it active somehow.

Any help is welcome.

Many thanks,

Methink you have to use P/Invoke
[DllImport ("user32.dll")]
static extern IntPtr SetFocus (IntPtr hWnd);
// Then in the code after save as:
SetFocus (Application.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument.Window Handle);
// not tested, just an idea
