    Microsoft Word 2003 on my Sony Vaio laptop doesn't have a Save As function, either in the File menu or as shortcut Alt+F A. It's not even there as a disabled/greyed out option - the options under File go straight from Save to Save as a webpage. Any ideas what could have happened "Save As" or how to restore it?

    Maybe:

    Go to Tools > Customize

    Then you will get a dialog box.

    Select "Always show full menus".

    Does this happen on all files?

    What about a NEW file?

    How about:

    Tools - Customize - Commands.

    With Categories set on File, find Save as in the list of commands and drag it up to the File menu.
