I'm working on my computer at work and when I opened a couple of files the information I put into them was gone. The file itself was saved, but the data within them was gone. I was working with them last week and it was all there. It was in excel that all the work was done. Is there a way to restore the files or do I just have to recreate them?

Are you sure that you have found the actual files that you last worked on in Excel?
Excel does not normally "lose" data, but it may be storing the file somewhere else.

Hi

Sounds as though the workbooks had become corrupt. Were you saving them to a server or just the PC hard dive? Do you have any backups? Has this happened before? I use the Autosave feature - Tools > Autosave (It's an Add-in that comes with Excel) - and it has saved me a lot of pain. Sounds as though you may have to start again - sorry.

Regards
