  Field Division 14:28 14 Feb 2007

I was working on an Excel sheet and saved chnages as I went along for about 3hrs, when I went to go back into the sheet It seemed there were missing data, Now if I try and do a system restore will this recover it

system restore is only suppossed to be effective for system files, not data files.

If you are lucky, depending on how your system is setup, you may find that Excel has automatically nade a backup of the last saved version with the extension .xlk

Try a search for .xlk and see if that helps.

Good luck,
