Save a file to a SharePoint library

You can easily save your Microsoft Office 2010 files directly to a Microsoft SharePoint library from within your file, or to a SharePoint Workspace to be synchronized later.

SharePoint libraries are locations on a SharePoint site where you can store and manage the files you share with team members. After you add files to the library, others are able to read and edit them, depending on their permissions. To learn more about SharePoint Server 2010 features, see Get started with SharePoint Server 2010.

A SharePoint Workspace is a copy of the SharePoint site, or selected sections you have downloaded to your computer so you can use it offline. Synchronizing your Workspace with the SharePoint site lets you upload documents you have worked with offline, as well as download files your teammates have updated. To learn more about SharePoint Workspaces and other tools for sharing files, see Overview: SharePoint Workspace 2010 Workspaces.
