Bummer.

Are you sure where the program was saved? I have had something similar happen, but found the saved document in the wrong place.

I have checked the whole PC, any place I could have saved, the whole network, even my thumb drive, even though I know I would not save any program there. It is simply gone. The weird thing is, I've been working on this program for a while, changing, improving, etc. Yesterday was at least a third time. So you would think I would at least have the version I had before I started yesterday, the second version, guess again, I have only the first rough draft, so to speak, of it. Makes me crazy. I already thought I saved it under wrong name , so I went and open anything and everything that I saved yesterday, nothing, gone. Ok, fine, something wasn't working yesterday and it did not save. But how is it possible that the program I had yesterday is gone, it was saved a week ago or so? That I simply cannot understand.

That really stinks Charlie. Have you looked in the Recycle Bin?

When I lose a file and can't find it I do a search of the entire computer, using the file name or part of the file name as the search key. Then I go do something else, because it takes a while. I think you can specify the "modified date" to make the search faster.

We have a neighbor who works overnight. Sometimes he comes home and cuts the grass before he goes to bed. It's EARLY! LOL But when I think about it, I'm so much happier hearing the lawnmowers and weed whackers than I was hearing the snow blowers and snow plows.

The gnats are HORRID this year! Now the pesky Eye gnats have been joined by the Buffalo gnats, the ones that bite and leave big itchy welts. Absorbine Jr only works for a brief period of time. Does not make for fun gardening.

Dawglover, first it was ticks, now gnats! You sure are having issues with the insects! The only problem we have had is after DH tilled the garden behind the house we had an attack of ants. I think he disturbed their nest!
