    AutoSave (Office 2000 SR-1)

    Does Excel have the autosave option in Office 2000? My wife uses it at work but we have XP (2002) at home. She found the autosave option in Word but it doesn't appear in Tools/Options (no Save tab appears).

    Thanks for you help.

    Companies can configure Office so that some user configurations are hidden or locked or just broken. I wouldn't rule that out as an explanation.

    I can't tell you about Excel.

    Word has a feature called AutoRecovery; it does not AutoSave. Please see my recent rant on this point for more information.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Leif on 13-Mar-04 16:44. TO UPDATE LINK TO http://www.bmsltd.ie/)</P>In Excel 2000, AutoSave is an Add-in, it can be activated through Tools | Add-ins...

    But before you do so, check out AutoSafe by WMVP/Excel MVP Jan Karel Pieterse. It is free for individual use, and you can read about it and download it from the Excel MVP page. You'll have to scroll down a bit to find it; note that there also is a utility AutoSafeVBE that is for Visual Basic components.
