Thread: "Save as" Filename with quotes (" ")

  1. #1


    It happened to me that trying to save one frequently used (Excel 7) workbook with "Save as" , the file name appeared enclosed in quotes. I had never seen this situation.

    Is my file corrupted ? Was it saved in other Excel version ?.

    One additional detail : this workbook (say WBA) is linked to other workbooks and whit the mentioned workbook (WBA)open, the linked formula shows the full linked workbook path, which must not occur: this indicates that the linked formula is not reconizing the linked workbook. I must say that WBA is in the correct directory, because it opens o.k. when I open it alone(in Explorer, by example).

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    It's fine. I've noticed it a few times when I was working with Add-ins. You can save as-is (the quotes won't show up), or you can remove the quotes first if you like.
