With reference to click here I closed the work book to carry on tomorrow and saved changes. I have now found the sheet I was working on with all my data has disappeared. All is left is the column A. What can I do to get it back please?

I'm afraid that I have no idea.

My code could not have caused this to happen - it only coloured cells.

1. look to see if excel has save a temporay copy of your data filename probably starts with $.

2. Not sure if s system restore will take you back to before the problem started and recover your file.

Where can I find these temp files. It must have had something to do with the macro as why would it have done this?

I may have found the problem. I was working on a csv file and it may have saved the only sheet I had active at the time. Is there anything I can do to get the other back or have I lost all my work?

If you saved it as a csv it would only save a single sheet. Unless you saved a backup .xls file I'm afraid that you have lost your work.

Is there anything I can do to prevent this happening in the future. Is there any sort of automatic back-up that can be set up in the background?
