How to change the "Save As" default path

When I open a preexisting file in Excel and choose to save it under a new
name, "Save As", the default path displayed is "C:\My Documents".  How can
I set it so that the path displayed is the last one accessed?

Go to Tools|Options
Choose the General Tab
Change the file path for the default file location
You'll need to know the whole path ahead of time because you have to type it out yourself
If you have folder set to display the whole file path in the address bar, I'd suggest navigating to that folder in Explorer, then copying the whole path

You can set folders to display the full path in Explorer by going to Tools|Folder Options. Chossed the View tab and  check Display Full Path in Title Bar

You can't change the default path to the last one used.  You'll need to
decide on the one most frequently used and change the default path to that -

Click on <Tools><Options><General>
In <Default file location> type in path (e.g. c:\bill)
Click on <OK>

This will, at least, reduce the number of times you'll need to use <Save

Contacts: 'Save as' name appears as 'Full Name'
I use Outlook 2000 with Windows XP. More recently, an odd problem has developed. When inputting a new name and address, I properly populate respective 'Name' fields with title/initial(s)/surname so, for example, the full name should appear as Mr. & Mrs. J. Bloggs. For the 'Save as' field, I would input Bloggs, Jimmy & Jane. I then Save and Close. The next time I view that particular contact, or print an address label, the first line (full name) of the address, Mr & Mrs. J. Bloggs, will have been replaced by the Save As name in reverse, Jimmy & Jane Bloggs....

Having trouble with Copy and Save As... for a form
Hi, all. I'm new to Access and unsure of whether I'm doing this correctly, but it has worked with all the other forms I have tried. Basically, I am trying to copy or "save as" a particular form so that I can modify it slightly for another purpose. However, when I copy and then paste the form, nothing happens. Similarly, if I click Save As... it prompts me for a form name, but then doesn't end up saving it. (Or if it does save it, I don't see it anywhere.) When I try this with other forms, it works, so I'm wondering if there is something wrong with the...

Excel 2002 crashing during "Save As" action.
