Document Library not saving word document back to library RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have a standard document library using the standard word template.
    If I upload a document and edit it, it will save back into the doc lib no problem.
    HOWEVER, if I use "New" on the document library, word opens up and I can put some text into the document, but on pressing save, instead of the doc saving into the sharepoint library I get the standard windows save dialog to save it to my local disk - anybody know what is happening - what have I not set up correctly?

    Cheers, Ange

  • Hi

    Are you able to see the webfolders in the "Save in" drop down?. Your document library should  be listed there.

    If its not displaying still you can able to select your document library from the "My NetworkPlaces" option appearing in the left navigator of the File save dialog box.

    If you are not able to see your document library in "My NetworkPlaces". you can add it manually using the option "Add a network place" under Network Tasks of My Network places.

    Hope this helps.
