XL: Using Saved Property to Determine If Workbook Has Changed

Summary

You can determine if changes have been made to a workbook by checking the
Saved property of the workbook. The Saved property returns a True or False value depending on whether changes have been made to the workbook. Note that it is possible to set the Saved property to True or False. The "More Information" section of this article contains sample macros that demonstrate the use of the Saved property.

Various conditions in your worksheet, such as the presence of volatile functions, may affect the Saved property. For additional information about these conditions, please click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
