Help with filename types in "Save As":
Posted by Tim Barber on October 03, 2001 7:35 AM
First, thanks for this service, it's much appreciated. Now my question: I am entering several hundred spreadsheets that I need to be able to sort in Windows Explorer by either the filename or the extension (file type). I want to use a filename format like "882900201.1590". However, Excel "Save As" only lets me save it with an .xls or other standard extension, giving me "882900201.1590.xls". I don't want to have to go back and edit all 500 filenames to get rid of the ".xls". Is there a way to Save As without adding the .xls extension to the filename?
