Where are my saved files?

I pulled up a document a certain file folder and then saved it under another name and date in the same file.  But when I open that file, the new file is not there.

The only was I can find it is when I go to "recent documents."  When I go to re-save it here, I can see it in the folder. 

I saved it in every format available, but I still cannot find this file in the folder.  Anybody know what is happening?

When you use Open, down at the bottom there is a pulldown box for  "Files Of Type" make sure you have picked All Files (*.*).    I couldn't find files myself because of this and thought you've done the same thing?

You said you can open from recent documents,   so open the file and in a blank area go to

 Insert | Quick Parts | field | pick 'FileName' and check the box for Add path | ok.

This will show the full path including the folder it's in.

You can also do a "Search" for the file under the new file name. Go to Start->Search, click on "All Files and Folders," insert file name and Search.

But I have (an old) folder "Correspondence", to which I am saving this file.  Why does it not show up in the folder?  Actually, I could find it only under "recent documents"  -- then after saving it to that folder under all possible types, (still was not to be seen in the folder) I finally saved it as a Template in that folder.  It is now there as a template.  Don't understand this.  Thanks for helping though.

Is the folder stored on your hard drive or a flash drive? You may want to try the Search to find the exact location of the file. Another thing you could try is to open the file, save it to the desktop and then copy and paste it (or drag and drop it) into your Correspondence folder.
