Seeing All File types when Saving a file

Posted: 12-30-2008, 09:40 PM
I have a problem that appears in the MS Office 2007 applications but I
suspect it is a Vista issue.....hence my post here.

I am saving a new Excel file to a directory and I want to give it a similar
name as a text file that already resides in that directory.

However, when I "Save As" the Excel file in the selected directory, the only
other files I see in that directory are other Excel files. I don't see
any of the other files that I know are in there (Word, Powerpoint, pdf, etc.).

In prior versions of Excel, I have been able to see all of the files in a
destination directory....is that still possible with Office 2007 with
Windows Vista? If so, how do I do that?

Thanks

Clarification: I know there are work-arounds such as using Windows Explore
to view all of the files in a directory. What I'd like to know is if there
is a way to see all files (regardless of type) in a destination directory
when using the "Save As" function of any of the MS Office 2007 Applications.
Thx.

I'm sorry, I just don't see why you need to.

Usually, entering an asterix [enter] for the file name will show all
files in any open dialog.
