Lost excel workbook

HI - before I slit my wrists, can anyone tell me how I can find a workbook which I've been working on since 8am? I've saved it dozens of times, and even saved it to the desktop at one point.

I did a final save and closed it down (no Do you want to save question). Just reopened it and bingo, it's reverted back to it's original untouched state. It's got to be somewhere, hasn't it? I also did a search for the file name and it didn't find it at all!

I'm desperate and about to hit the bottle...

I've got it - but it was a nasty moment

As it may help someone else in the future who might have the same problem, what did you do to get the file back?

I did a search for it, but there was no trace of the file, then I did a search for the actual worksheet and there it was. Funny, because the file was certainly there.


Yet another of life's little mysteries. I feel much better after a large glass of the red stuff!
