Disabling Excel Auto backup copy

Hi folks,

I'm having a little problem with an Excel file at work. It's not the end of the world, but this one file seems to have the "Always create a backup copy" feature turned on...

How can I disable this? It's Excel XP running on Win2000.

I know how to do it in Word, but the option doesn't seem to be in the same place in Excel.

Thanks in anticipation,

Regards,

Simsy

That was in fact the second place I'd looked... and I hadn't seen it! Must pay more attention!

Yes you're correct... the autosave does need an add-in to be installed.

It wasn't the autosave feature, but rather the feature to create another, backup, copy, (with a different extention, I think it's .xlk), when it is saved.

Thanks anyway,

Regards,

Simsy
