Does anyone know how to BLOCK people using quotes to change the file type in Save As dialogs?  For example, open an excel file, do a "Save as" and type 123.tmp and hit enter and it saves the file as 123.tmp.  If you dont put it in quotes, the file gets saved as 123.tmp.xls

Since I doubt that a DontAllowQuotesInSaveAs registry value exists, is there some hook I can register or something?

I would like a nice generic solution, but if that isnt possible, is there a non-macro way to do it for Office?

Im trying to keep users from changing from the standard file types.
