    Hi there

    Sometimes I click on the X to close the workbook and I accidentally press NO when the computer prompts me to save the workbook since it usually comes up in a yellow box that does not really capture my attention. This usually happens when I'm in a hurry or late at night when I'm half asleep. Is there some code that makes a message box pop up with a message that says in big bold letters "YOU FORGOT TO SAVE YOUR FILE" when I click on the X to close the workbook? If so, this will save me a lot of headackes.

    I am no guru, however I did find this in the hep wizard of MS Excel. Hope it is of some help to you.

    Save workbooks automatically as you work
    On the Tools menu, click AutoSave.
    If the AutoSave command is not on the Tools menu, you must install the AutoSave add-in.
    How?
    Select the Automatic save every check box.
    In the Minutes box, enter how often you want Microsoft Excel to save workbooks.
    Select any other options you want.

    Sometimes you miss the most obvious.

    As bringmoney points out, AutoSave exists & may help a bit.

    Personally I wouldn't use it. I do a lot of stuff that takes time to build up. So if something doesn't work out & I want to go back to "the start", AutoSave would prevent me.

    If I used anything at all, I'd go for AutoSaFe http://www.jkp-ads.com/Download.htm
    ; it just depends what you need.
