MS Office 2013 - File Save As SharePoint is missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • We noticed a recent change within our environment and cannot pin point the exact cause or resolution. In the past we where able, from every MS Office Product to perform a File \ Save As \ SharePoint this option is no longer available.

    The only option now available is

    Save As:

    Other Web Locations

    Computer

    + Add a Place

    In the Past we had:

    Save As:

    SharePoint

    Computer

    + Add a Place

    Any assistance would be great!

  • Hi,

    According to your description, the issue may be caused by the SharePoint site was removed in connected services.

    We can check it under Account tab. Please see the image below.

    To workaround this issue, please try the method of this thread, and I have copied here:

    ===

    Open Word in Office 2013 / File / Account - remove all "Connected Services" - Close Word 2013 and reopen, then File / Save As / Add a Place - add the Sharepoint site - Both Sharepoint and OneDrive for Business returned as store locations.

    ===

    It's recommended to download and install Configuration Analyzer Tool (OffCAT), which is developed by Microsoft Support teams. Once the tool is installed, you can run it at any time to scan for hundreds of known issues in Office programs.

  • Hi George, Thanks for your reply.

    No, we do not have any “connected services”

    The only option we have is File / Save As / Add a Place / Office 365 SharePoint

    In the past we used to be able to do File / Save As and “SharePoint” would be displayed in our choices in all our Office Products (i.e. Excel, Word, PowerPoint, OneNote)

    We are on a corporate network, with SharePoint infrastructure in place.

    I am trying to add screenshots, but it doesn't allow me, saying "Body text cannot contain images or links until we are able to verify your account"

  • Hi,

    As far as I know, we may save a file to a SharePoint library for the first time, and then we can click Save as you do for any file. This is by design. Please try the steps below:

    1) Add the document (Excel file) to a document library on a SharePoint 2013 site

    2) Click on the file within the SharePoint document library.

    3) Click open in Excel

    4) Save the file

    5) Close Excel

    6) Open Excel, select new Blank Workbook, File, Save As, "SharePoint" should now appear.

    Next, There is a document available on the Microsoft site how to add custom providers to this list: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35474
