force Excel 2013 to retain the file name when saving

MS office 2013 not retaining the file name when saving - clicking save -as and navigating to the target folder.  But file name field is blank and we need to retain the precise name for business purposes.  How can I force Excel 2013 to retain the file name when saving?     If we add a name the file saves normally.

Hi dgaudioso,

Does this problem occur when you're saving files in a specific folder/drive or is it location independent?
Is this a problem you see only with shared Excel files or with your private files?

Also a quick trick to see what issue might be occurring is:
1. Click on File from within an Excel workbook
2. Click "Info"
3. Select "Check for Issues" then select "Inspect Document"
4. Check all boxes then click inspect

If there are any issues you'll see them and you can rectify them then try to save the file and see if the issue persists. I hope that works.
