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.
