Unable to save workspace in Excel 2007 without SharePoint
Posted on 2009-07-06
I am trying to save the layout and organizing of my current open workbooks by using the "Save Workspace" function under VIEW-Window.
I receive the followign error message: "This extension can not be used with the selected file type. Change the file extension in the File name text box or select a different file type by changing the Save as type".
In Outlook 2003 you could have for isntance 3 files open and you could save the workspace. Next time, when you clinck on the workspace file (.xlw) it would open the 3 different workbooks the way you left the organized.
In excel 2007 I receive the error message stated above. All info found untill now refers to SharePoint which is not being used here. I cannot believe that with 2007 you can only save workspaces on sharepoint and not locally anymore.
Does anybody know a way to save xlw files locally with excel 2007?
Thanks in advance.
