    Accidentally saved over a document on excel after clearing the contents. Have tried version history with no luck. There must be a way to retrieve the document. Any suggestions?

    Windows 10. I can't save an excel sheet

    So I've created a small, very simple excel spreadsheet. Click Save As. It produces a list of destinations including Documents, Desktop etc. I click on documents and get precisely nothing. No error message. No co-operation. Any suggestions?
     
  3. Unable to print Excel documents on Windows 10.

    Hello Gifford,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We regret the inconvenience caused and will assist you in resolving the issue.



    From the above description, I understand you are unable to print Excel documents on the computer running Windows 10.



    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you few questions:

    • Did you check if you are able to print other system documents or webpages using the printer?
    • Did you check if the printer is visible under Devices and Printers?


    You will be able to print documents and web pages from the Printer if the device is online or showing working status under
    Devices and Printers.



    If haven’t tried, I suggest you to check if you are able to print documents other than Excel documents or webpages using the printer.



    Also check if the printer is listed under Devices and Printers
    by following the steps below:



    • Press Windows logo key on the keyboard, type Devices and Drivers and select the top most search result.
    • Under Printers, check if the printer you are trying to print from is listed.
    • If yes, print a test Excel document and check if the device works.


    Write to us with the status of the issue on the same post for further assistance. Your reply is important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.

    excel not auto recovering and manually saving

    Hi,

    The concern you have encountered with Excel not auto saving may be due to a corrupted file or a misconfigured setting.

    May we ask if you have 3rd party software running when using Excel? If yes, we suggest to temporarily disable it to isolate the issue.

    Any changes made on your computer prior to the issue?

    Have you tried any possible troubleshooting steps? If yes, what are those steps and did you get any error messages?

    You can turn-on the auto save option by the following steps:

    • Open Excel
    • Go to File then Options
    • Under Save option, check the 'Save AutoRecovery information in every' option
    the best way to check when auto save is disabled is to hover over the toggle and read the reason that the popup tool tip identifies. Simply follow the steps provided in this

    article
    .

    According to this
    article
    the autosave function will be disabled when the file is in the old file format .xls.

    Kindly keep us posted with the results.

    Regards.
