    File not saved (XL2000 SR-1)

    Last night my wife opened an Excel file and made extensive changes to it. When she tried to save her work, she kept getting a message "File not saved." We were unable to save this file into any alternative location or with a new name. We were able to open other files and save them however. A search of this site and Google on the error message was not helpful. Does anyone know the cause/cure for this problem? The only suggestion I could find on Google was that a daily reboot might prevent this?

    This is one of the nightmares of Excel. <!profile=pieterse>pieterse<!/profile>'s Autosafe Add-In (search this Forum) is probably the best way forward on an Excel 2000 platform. The other alternative if to remember to tap CTRL+S at every halting point in your work ~5-10 minutes. HTH
