I have just accidentally "saved as" one document using the title of another - in other words, I have saved document X using the title document Y, but the trouble is, document Y already existed and has now been saved over. Quite apart from feeling a real numpty, I wonder, is there any way that I can recover the original file? Tim
Just for interest, though I don't think it will solve your problem!
Have you ever bothered to open a Word 2000 document with Notepad? (If the doc is too large it won't open!)
I believe the whole troubled history is there for those who understand the code......... As you scroll down through the gibberish you will see patches of readable text.........My point is that you might be able to copy and paste any critical data you might recognise there.
Just given it a try, Diemmess, and I can see all the new document but none of the old. Take your point though. I've downloaded "Doc Regenerator" and it is currently scanning to see what it can find. Fingers crossed.
