Is there a way to disable the .xlsc file?

It saves to a different folder than the original file so users have to remember to update the file path each time. For non-tech savvy users it is very confusing/frustrating.

I have a similar problem.

Previously posted as" Save during execution defaults to old directory".

Don’t want to disable the save; just want to make sure it stays in the same path as the spreadsheet.

Good point! Yes, that would help a lot of it would save in it’s current folder! @gdgsupport @gdgdevsupport @gdgsoft

Anybody have a work-around? Starting to distribute .exe file.

What about this option? It will store the save files into the same folder as the EXE file, provided that the folder is not read-only (place the EXE into the “My Documents” or “AppData” folders for instance).

Tried it with and without the checkbox. It still goes to a much older version of the application (Checkin_1.1). I’m at my wits end to determine where this reference to Checkin)_1.1 comes from (My software is now in Checkin_1.2).


You get the screenshot above with or without the option?
With the option enabled, you can remove the history by deleting the “.dat” file in the same folder as the EXE

Strange … no dat file in that directory.
