You can save any file format that you can open in Excel 2010 in the current Excel Workbook file format (
.xlsx). By doing this, you can use new features of Excel 2010 that are not supported in other file formats, such as the larger grid.
When we start to create a workbook, and we want to recover it on another occasion to modify it, print it, in short, carry out any subsequent operation on it, and store it on a disk drive. This operation is called Save.
Note: When you save workbooks created in an earlier version of Excel as an Excel 2010 workbook, some formats and features may not be preserved.
There are two ways to save a workbook:
- Save as. When saving a file for the first time or saving a copy of an existing one.
- Save. When we save the changes that a file may have undergone, overwriting it.
To store the file by giving it a name:
Step 1: Click the File menu and choose the Save As … option.
Step 2: Choose a folder where you want to save the sheet, Enter the name of the file you want to give to your sheet and Select Save As type, the default is the .xlsx format.
The following dialog box will appear:
Step 3: Finally, press the Save button and your sheet will be saved with the name you entered in the folder you picked.
It already existed. That is, it already had a name. Its old name will appear in the File name box. If you press the Save button without indicating a new file path, we will modify the document we are working on. On the contrary, if you want to create another new document with the modifications you have made, without changing the original document, you will have to follow these steps:
Select the folder where you are going to save your work. For this, you must use the browser that is included in the window.
In the File name box, type the name you want to give your file. And finally, click on the Save button.
To save the changes made to a file: Select the Save option from the File menu. Or, click on the Save button on the Quick Access Bar. You can also use the key combination Ctrl + S.If we try to save a file that has never been saved yet, the Save As… dialog box will appear, allowing us to name it and choose the path where we will save it.
