Hi Pam

In answer to your ptw 123234;

(1) I have saved abd closed the document since I lost the text

(2) I used a previous document as the base for a new document. So I opened the previous document and performed a "save as" and renamed the new document. I then commenced deleting and inserting text into the new document. After about 2 pages of typing the text the 3 rd page appeared accepted one nword and then died. I opened "recent documents" and tried ton recoer that way to no avail. Also tried " restore previous versions" to no avail. Also tried to save the open document without success. In frustration i deleted the open document. I have always assumed that even if a document is deleted it is still lurking somewhere on the "C" drive. Can you help??

The answer was not adequate and no follow up suggestion was made to my response of December 14th. I have moved on. As a result I believe I am entitled to a refund of my deposit.


Thank you
