Anyone know of any way to recover an Excel file that was closed without saving it! Yes, silly me

Hmmm - I think you are asking the impossible. S

But look on the bright side - at least you have learned something from this.

Sorry I can't be more optamistic on your behalf.

If you have auto-backups on u can search through your temp files for it

Try opening Excel and goto File at the top left hand corner and click on it. At the bottom you should see the last document(s) you were working on listed....

One way to stop this problem in future (particularly if you use excel a lot and want to save your files on a regular basis)is to use the Autosave feature.

This is an excel add-in and to set it up go tools>add-ins and proceed from there!

Good luck!

Thanks all. Not recovered but I'll make sure Autosave's on in future
