Can I force Word 2007 "Save As" to the default file location?
Posted on 2009-04-03
Is there a way to force Word 2007, when doing a "Save As", to go to the "default file location" that we specified in the Word options?
It appears Word 2007 tries to go to the same location from which the file came when doing a "Save As" which could be something different.
We have a Web server running IIS 6.0 that hosts some Word files that are read only. When we open a file in the browser, it starts up Word and opens it just fine. However, when we do a "Save As" a window pops up for user credentials so it can save it back on the Web server. If we cancel that window, then the "Save As" window goes to our "default file location".
I want to force it to the default location to eliminate the pop up window.
Note: This does NOT happen with our older version of Word XP (2002).
