Making Sure That the Data Is Safe and Sound
before you save the workbook, you’re out of luck. You have to re-create each
keystroke — a painful task made all the worse because it’s so unnecessary. To
avoid this unpleasantness altogether, adopt this motto: Save your work any
time that you enter more information than you could possibly bear to lose.
To encourage frequent saving on your part, Excel even provides you with a
Save button on the Quick Access toolbar (the one with the picture of a 3 1 ⁄ 4 ”
floppy disk, the very first on the toolbar). You don’t even have to take the
time and trouble to choose the Save command from the File pull-down menu
(opened by choosing File) or even press Ctrl+S; you can simply click this tool
whenever you want to save new work on disk.
When you click the Save button, press Ctrl+S, or choose File ➪ Save for the
first time, Excel 2013 displays the Save As screen similar to the one shown
in Figure 2-21. By default, Excel 2013 selects the Documents folder on your
Windows Live SkyDrive as the place to save the new workbook.
