I have an Excel worbook with operators using in 2003.  

Instead of the AutoRecover function, I would like a macro to run automatically (not on close) which would automatically save the workbook periodically, say every 15 minutes, to a network share.

Could someone help with a sample macro or script to accomplish this?
