When I use Excel, no matter which spreadsheet I open, I now have to turn Autosave on with each workbook. If I don't it will not save any of my work, and I have to it all over again. I've never had this happen until last week, and had to redo my check register twice because I wasn't sure what happened the first time. I turn autosave on manually, which opens it up to share with the Onedrive, then it saves properly. Not being used to this, I know I will forget and I use Excel a LOT. Can you tell me what happened and how to fix it please?

By the way, I have checked the setting of "Autosave Onedrive and Sharepoint Online files by default" on Excel" and it is checked. This happens with every single workbook I open, new or existing.

And now none of my spreadsheets are saving at all.
