Excel Annotates 1 when saving already existing workbook

  • Funny way my Excel is working. Let me explain what is happening on my machine. lets say, I already have a workbook named lesson.xls I open this workbook, make the necessary changes required and when I press Save Icon or CTRL + S, Save as pop-up menu pops up and if I look at the file name in the filename dialog box, it shows lesson1.xls


    As you see, we have two issues. Why is Save - As pop up menu comes out when I press Save Icon? And why is Excel Appending the already named workbook with numeral "1".


    I hope you can look into this issue and help me resolve it. This is happening a quite heck of time on my Excel files.


    Thanks

  • Is this particular file set up as a template? I think that's how templates work.

  • Neale,


    I have not set up any templates nor it works on only one file. It works for all my files. I dont know why this is happening.


    Thanks for your help in helping me resolve my issue.

  • Is there any pasttern to your problems? Is it all files> if not then is there a commoanlity between the ones it does apply to?


    Did it start after you installed an add-in or installed something else? Is only on certain types of files?

  • There are no add-ins checked with my Excel. And they are not in read only mode.


    Funny thing which I observed now is that when I double click a Excel file, it annotated the file name with "1". Just observed this !!!


    Do you want me to re-install Excel ?

  • Is it happening with Word? Are you at work or home. Is there a Server involved? Which operating systems are you using?

  • A re-install may be appropriate. But it might be worthwhile waiting and seeing if anyone else has any other ideas/suggestions.


    Remeber to take a copy of any custom lists you may have and also take a copy of your personal macro file just in case the re-install affects it.
