they make some changes on the spreadsheet like the date and some new entries.  it shows it saves, but when you open the same spreadsheet again, the changes are still the old ones.  its like you did not even make changes to the spread sheet..   sometimes it will not even let you put an entry in a cell.  reboot the computer and it will let you make entries again.  this only applies to excel 2010 on that computer.  we reloaded excell from scratch on this also.

Please advice following questions :
-> The location of file being save...locally or on the network (Server) ?
-> Problem with all Excel files or particular file ?
-> Try disabling Antivirus and try saving.



Possible reason for file not getting save are following

   -> You save an Excel file to a network drive where you have restricted permissions.
   -> You save an Excel file to a location that does not have sufficient drive space.
   -> There is a conflict with an antivirus software program.
    ->The 218-character path limitation has been exceeded when you save an Excel file.
   -> The Transition Formula Evaluation feature is turned on in Excel.
    -> The file was created from a template that contains embedded objects.
