Found the answer. I must have somehow accidentally unchecked the "automatic file extension" box in the "save" dialog box. When I checked the box, everything was back to normal. Never knew it would automatically save as "Ole2" with the box unchecked... you learn something new every day! Sorry for the inconvenience!
