Save a file

You need to save your proposal regularly when using the Business Cost Calculator. You do this by clicking the Save to your computer button.

This will always bring up the save pop-up, where you find a place to store your file and name it.

Name your file

Always choose a clear and easy to understand file name. This makes it easy to identify later.

It's best to add the date you created the file to the file name. It's also good practice to add a version number.

A good file name might be: Proposal1_20080528v1.

The name tells you what it is, the date tells you when you created it, and the version tells you how many times it's been changed.

Note: This is a guideline only. Your department / agency will have its own file name convention for you to follow.

Where to put it

Your department / agency will have guidelines on where to save your files.

Having problems saving your file?

To fix this:

  1. Go into Tools > Options.
  2. Click the 'Main' tab.
  3. Click the 'Always ask me where to save files' radio button.
  4. Click the OK button.
