I find the Autosave feature to be very intrusive and it also interferes with some macros I run. I know how to disable it via File/Options/Save/untick the box, but even if I then immediately save my file the feature is re-enabled the next time I open the file, so I have to manually disable it again.

How can I either turn it off permanently (for this file only) or disable it via VBA?



  • AS an FYI, whenever you save in MS Project you remove the undo history. For this reason I don't use it.

  • Agreed, that is annoying, but unfortunately I am stuck with MSP.

I think the problem is that my IT dept have updated my registry which I am unfortunately not able to edit. This link


shows what needs to be changed, and explains why it resets each time I close and reopen Project.
