    Hi All

    I’ve set my default file location in Word to (for example) X:Files and when I create a new document that’s great.

    When I receive a word document by email, I open it up and I “Save As” – only to find I’m presented with my local Documents folder.

    I understand that Office would try to “Save As” in the same folder as an original document (in the case of an existing doc) so the default file location doesn’t work here, I also understand that opening a doc that arrived as an attachment will create a temporary file in a temp folder and since by this stage the doc already exists, “Save As” ignores the default file location.

    I have a client who keeps everything on a network drive and wants the default location to affect all docs, even attachments, so it’s nice and easy for her to save docs she receives from other people into her nice, tidy network folder.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Rob
