Specs: Windows 7
Tried to save an Excel spreadsheet, message said could not save as original name, was creating one that would be located in temporary files. Message vanished before I could write down the rather long name. Where would these files be located? What would the Excel temp file extension be? Thank you!

✔ Best Answer
.tmp if your working on the file direct on your machine it will be saved in your temp files, run a search for *.tmp, if you were working on the file while connected to a server it may have saved on the server.
its always best (in my opinion) to set your office to save a copy every 1-3 minutes while doing a lot of work, and to save to a folder specific for files while your working on them, that way you always have the original and a copy that stores the changes.
