I am looking for the most expeditious command if given an open Microsoft Word document that I want to save to a file located in my documents.

Currently, I say, "save as" and I give it a name. How do I then direct it to my documents and save it in a specific folder, called, "my stuff"?

I take it that you're still having a problem with the VoicePower Open from/Saved to command. Ron asked me to test it in both DNS 10.1 and DNS 11.5. I also tested it with Windows XP and Windows 7 64-bit. I duplicated your folder structure as well. This command works as it should on all of my systems (four) using your folder structure and no matter what drive I put it on (i.e., I have six drives on three systems and two drives on my laptop). That is, neither Ron nor myself can duplicate your problem. Has Ron not contacted you?

Also, is you're KnowBrainer profile up-to-date? If so, the VoicePower commands work just fine under Windows XP using DNS 10.1 Medical and under Windows 7 64-bit using DMPE and DNS 11.5 Professional. The version of Dragon should make any difference anyway, nor should the version of Windows.

You could conceivably create a KnowBrainer command to accomplish this and, not having looked lately, there may be a command already in KnowBrainer that you can either use or modify. However, and given that you're using the Preferred/Premium version, you can't use Advanced Scripting and maintaining and updating any KnowBrainer script is tedious at best. There is no easier way to do it than with VoicePower.

You can contact me directly at

I would be more than happy to work with you directly to see if we can't figure out why the VoicePower command isn't working.

Your KnowBrainer command utility also includes a Save In <FolderList> command which is designed to be edited. The command currently only has 1 argument which is Save In KnowBrainer but you can add countless arguments. Just make sure you additionally edit the FolderList command by adding the name. You'll find a step-by-step on this procedure in our VerbalBasic Manual when you look up “How to Edit a Listing Command”.
