Default Save As versus Save

I've created a spreadsheet that I need to make accessible to our managers.
They will need to open the form fill it in and save the new form with their
information. How do I force them to use the "Save As" command versus the
"Save"?

By making it open in read-Only mode.....then the user can't "save", they
have to "save as"....

Hi,

You can also make the form file an *.xlt (template file)

Cheers,
