It depends on your platform.  E.g. on Unix/Linux, ?savehistory says


     This works under the 'readline' and GNOME interfaces, but not if
     'readline' is not available (for example, in batch use).

To be able to help you further, we would need quite precise details of 
your platform and which interface you are using.
