    Hi,
    I am running Windows Vista and Excel from Office 2000. I have previously had no issues creating, editing and saving Excel files. I have recently started sharing files from my desktop which is running Windows Vista and Office 2007. However, the files that I am having issues with saving were initially created on the laptop where the issues are occuring. I can open the shared Excel files with no problem and make changes. When I save the files however, I get this message, "Your changes could not be saved to 'file name.xls but were saved to a temporary document named 'D6C73000'. Close the existing document, then open the temporary document and save it under a new name." I can open, edit and save changes made to Word documents in the same shared folder structure. Can anyone please explain why this is happening and what I can do to stop it?
    Thanks,
    Ophelia

    Hi ophelia2009

    As these issues seem to stem from the same problem, I have merged your two posts to this thread.

    This is only occurring with Excel files?
    Word is unaffected?
