[dba-Tech] Word save when existing question

Hi Susan,

If one opens a dialog box and makes no changes, but uses the close or OK 
button to close it instead of the cancel button or ESC key, the program 
treats that as a change.  The command sent in to the CPU is something 
like this:  "look at the settings in this dialog box and accept them."   
It makes no difference at all that the user didn't actually make any 
changes, the computer got a command to accept settings and interprets 
that as a change.

I hope this is helpful,
