Name and save a workbook

■ After entering data into a workbook, you must save it. Otherwise, this data will be lost when you leave Excel.

■ A saved workbook is called a file.

■ A file can be saved to a hard disk, removable disk, shared drive, or SkyDrive. Files stored on SkyDrive are virtually stored on the Microsoft SkyDrive.com website.

■ You must assign a name to the file when it is saved. The file names must be descriptive, with a limit of 255 characters for the name, disk drive, and path.

■ A file name can contain letters, numbers, and spaces, but not \ /: *? "<> Or | .

■ Excel automatically adds a dot and file type extension (usually .xlsx) to the end of the file name when you save it.

■ You must select a location in which to save your file, for example the Documents folder. You can also create new folders in which to store your workbooks.

■ The default Excel file format is .xlsx or Strict Open XML Spreadsheet file format. This XML-based file format makes it easier for your workbooks to integrate with external data sources and gives smaller file sizes than in earlier versions of Excel.

✓ You can install updates from older versions of Excel so that they can read the new .xlsx format.

■ Data can also be saved in other formats, such as HTML, Excel Binary (a file format for very large workbooks), or earlier versions of Excel (.xls).

✓ You may want to save data in a different format to share with someone using a different version of Excel or a web browser to view your data.

■ The Backstage view shows where you can save your file, such as SkyDrive or Computer. Backstage view is displayed the first time a file is saved.

✓ You can exit Backstage mode by clicking the Back button.

■ When you select Computer, the Recent Folders list provides the locations of recently opened folders.

■ You can select another storage location by double-clicking Computer or by clicking Browse.

■ Once you have saved a workbook, simply click the Save button to save the changes made since the last save action. You will not need to re-enter the file name.

■ You can save a previously saved file under a different name by using the Save As tab in the Backstage view.

■ Click Browse to find a location and click Save.

As the dialog box will open.
