How do I stop the editor from automatically creating a file that doesn't exist?

After typing
edit someFile.m
I inadvertently clicked "OK" in the dialog that said that the "file doesn't exist do you want to create it now?" I got that message because the file wasn't in the current path. "Stop asking this" must have been clicked on because now, everytime I try to edit a file that is not on the current path, I get a new file in the current directory with the entered file name. How do I turn this off? I haven't been able to find where this is set.
Thanks times a million,
Bill

Hi Bill,
Go to Preferences > General > Confirmation Dialogs, and ensure that "Prompt when editing files that do not exist" is selected.

Oh my ... That was too easy ... I can't believe I missed that (well maybe I can :) ) Thanks so much Jared.
