    "document not saved" (xl 97 (win NT machine))

    When trying to save a file, the message ""document not saved" sometimes appears. I can't save no matter what I try. The only option seems to be to select all the data on the worksheet and paste it into a new worksheet and save it under a different file name.

    The things that come to mind that could cause that are:

    1- The file is marked as read only.

    2- The file is opened exclusive by someone else on a network.

    3- You do not have write permission on the directory where the file is stored.

    4- The device where the file is stored is too full to hold another copy of the file (a new file is written before the old one is deleted).

    5- The file is in the root directory and the root directory already has the maximum number of files it can hold.

    Legare,

    Just to add on to your point 2.

    I had the help desk call me up during the week because a user had a similar problem (although in Word).

    It turned out that the user was also logged on at another terminal at the same time.

    As soon as the rest of the Help Desk people heard this, the laughing could have been heard overseas.
