Windows 7: Where is the Excel file created?

Where is the Excel file created?

Hi folks

Win 7 64 bit
login as user

I found following script said to create .xls file on the fly:-
[R] Excel Export in a beauty way

Ran the script on R. After finish executed:-
> export.xls(iris)

It seemed creating iris.xls on the fly. But I can't find it after finish nor with "search". Can you help?


1) The script has nothing to do with Win7. I just want to find the iris.xls file if it has been created.

R also has nothing to do with Win7 just running on the latter as platform.

I sorted out the problem. It is simple. Just made a reboot. Now I can find the file with "search"?
