"You can try adding registry setting for Excel.

start regedit
go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Excel\Options (12.0 for Excel 2007, if you have older version of Excel it will be different, 11.0 for 2003, 10.0 for 2002...)
add a dword value named AlwaysSaveToCurrentPath and set it to 0

This should make ""Save As"" use the same folder where the file was opened in. If you set the value to 1, it will use Default folder when using ""Save As"""
