Not that i am aware of, but it is easily implemented using a little macro such as :
note : place this code in a module, update the filename & location !
Public keep_saving As Boolean

Public Sub auto_save()

    If keep_saving Then
        Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("00:00:05"), "auto_save"
        ThisWorkbook.SaveAs "c:\temp\test  " & Replace(Now, ":", "-") & ".xls"
    End If

End Sub

Open in new window


and place this code in thisworkbook:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
    keep_saving = False
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
    keep_saving = True
    Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("00:00:05"), "auto_save"
End Sub

Open in new window

above macro saves the worksheet each 5 seconds, so also update the timevalue to :

"00:05:00"
