Excel and 'save as'


Androm

Likes # 0

I have a spreadsheet (excel 2003) which I can modify and use perfectly but it has suddenly stopped me using 'save as'. I can save, I can copy & paste but I cannot 'save as'. On my laptop (XP, Office 2003), where it was created, if I try to 'save as', it crashes. I have copied it to my office computer (Win 7, Office 2010), it offers me a drip down list but the list is blank. Any ideas? Michael

Can you save as with other spreadsheets?

You are right, none of my spreadsheets will 'save as'. Virus?

Check the file properties - it may have set its self to read only.

Some info here. It suggests that recent updates are the cause.

Woolwell - may still be relevant if Microsoft have released a fix with the same problem.

Do you have Skype? I recall that "click to call" feature interferes causing a problem with Excel.
