How-to assing cells in Excel to correspond with file name?

Question

My dad wants me to make him a excel sheet with all different formula's in it. No problem, I can make those. But in the sheet, the first cells are used for a name from his client, and the second cell is used for a date.

Q: Is it possible to make Excel use those to cells to create the filename of the sheet when it saves?

The answer would simply be No. I think there was some kind of trick that allowed you to save a document with the name of the first sheet, but hell if I remember how it worked...

Well, the idea is that whatever I put in the first two cells, is used by Excel to create the filename. If im correct, Notepad did that in the early days. Picking the first words from the document and then autosave it with those words.

      Question from Reader - Email Form
       
       
      Hi Tom,
       
      Ouch. I know how it feels losing a days worth of work. The worst part is when you have to recreate what you've already done.
       
      To answer your question, when you found the Entry "OutlookSecureTempFolder" what was the path in the DATA column? I assume you reviewed this post here to find it. It looks like you found the registry key entry so your more than 1/2 way there. Find that key again and you should have the path to your OLK folder and your Excel should be sitting there.
       
      Now the path might be a bit confusing because with Outlook 2007, there actually is "NOT" an OLK folder. For instance, on my XP/Outlook 2007 install, my OLK folder or "Temp Outlook Folder" / "OutlookSecureTempFolder" is:
       
      "c:\Documents and Settings\mrgroove\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\4V32TZLP"
       
      So if you look on your box you will find what your looking for in the "Content.Outlook" folder. Take a look there and your golden.
       
      Let me know how this works for you!
