Saving a Spreadsheet

To save your spreadsheet, you can either click on the Save icon or click on the File drop-down menu and choose Save  or Save As.  A window appears as below, make sure you have changed to your network drive or the folder where you want to store your workbook  and enter a name for your spreadsheet file.  Click the Save button and your workbook will be saved, the file name will now appear in the title bar at the top of your Excel window.

By using the Save as type box at the bottom of the Save window you can save your spreadsheet in different formats, such as an older version of Excel, a comma separated file (useful for data export and import) or a Lotus 123 spreadsheet.  These different file types are often useful if you are trying to send your spreadsheet to someone who does not have Excel 2000 on their computer.
