Chapter 2. Creating a Simple Worksheet > Saving a Worksheet File

Saving a Worksheet File

Anyone who uses a computer has probably lost data at one time or another. If you don’t save your worksheet regularly, it only takes a second to lose hours of work. Fortunately, Excel has a built-in feature to help protect you against this eventuality. However, you still need to save your worksheet so you can refer to it or make changes to it at some future time.

Saving a File the First Time

When you first open Excel, a blank screen appears with the title Worksheet1 in the Excel title bar. The next blank worksheet you create is named Worksheet2, then Worksheet3, and so forth. Those names are temporary names and are not very descriptive, so you need to assign a name that is associated with the worksheet contents.
