    File not saved (Office 2000)

    I think I'm grapsing at straws here, but I'll post the question anyway. I had an existing Excel sheet open and make a number of changes to it. When I went to close i expected to see the "Do you want to save the changes...." dialog box, but I swear it didn't pop up. When I immediately opened up the file again all my changes were gone. I've looked everywhere on our network here for the newer version but have come up with nothing. I'm hoping that someone here can point to something I have missed.

    Thanks

    1. I've seen this a couple of times; either restarting Excel or rebooting the PC cured it.
    2. Does your workbook contain VBA code? It is possible for code to make Excel believe that the workbook has already been saved.
    3. Although it's relatively rare, a workbook can get corrupted, and this could cause all kinds of unexpected behavior.

    In the meantime, you could save the workbook explicitly before closing it.

    I have been kicking myself all morning for relying on Excel to save it for me rather than saving it myself explicitly. Never again!!!
