I have a user at work that wants a rule that, when it runs, saves documents to a specific folder. She wants this for all office products. So, in word, excel, and so on.
I know you can setup a rule in Outlook, but there are 2 things about this. In outlook, I tried to create a rule to save attachments to a specific folder OUTSIDE of outlook. So something like C:\foldername, but couldn't find how to do that.
And in Word I didn't see that there was even a way to setup a rule.
So does Word, or Excel not have rules like Outlook?
and in Outlook, is there not a way to create a rule to save attachments to locations outside of Outlook? ie C:\foldername?

In Excel / Word/ PowerPoint etc..  you can look under File / Options/ Save and set up the default save location. As for Outlook, let me look into that.

There is no option to set a RULE that does what you require. Your user would have to change the file options to point to a new location each time they wanted to change it.

default save location! lammontoya, I don't know what I was thinking. I've set the default location for other users several times! for some reason, I didn't think of that in this case!
So now I have to figure out Outlook, and I'm all set.

Glad it worked out!
