How can I configure Excel 2007 to auto save opened documents every specified number of minutes (e.g. save every 5 minutes).

Thank you

1 Click the "Office Button" on the top left side of your spreadsheet. Click "Excel Options."
2 Click "Save" on the left side of the "Excel Options" dialog box.
3 Check the box labeled "Save AutoRecover information every x minutes."
4 Select the time increment you wish to have Excel autosave your worksheets. This number ranges from one to 120 minutes.
5 Click "OK" at the bottom of the "Excel Options" box. This procedure enables autosave on this worksheet and every worksheet you create in the future.

You mean Bottom Right Side of the Office Menu :)
