Default "save as" is like save

Why is it that when I try to use "save as" to save my word doc's it does not
prompt if i am sure that I want to overwrite the existing document on my hard
drive?
Ive uninstalled office completely and reinstalled it and still nothing. I
have checked the options for save and did not find anything. It was working
recently and now it does not prompt anymore. Can anyone please help help?

Unless you choose a new filename, Save As *is* equivalent to Save.
