Welcome to JustAnswer.com, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.

As long as you are certain you saved the document, I can help you find it. I just need to ask you some questions first.

To get started, I need to know what type of computer you're using.

Windows XP, Widows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Or a Mac.

If it's a Mac, please check the OSX version as follows.

Click the apple sign at the top left of your screen, then click about this mac. And then where it says version, send that to me as a reply.

Also, what version of Word are you using, 2007. 2010.2013.

And roughly how many days ago did you save the file or last access it. 1 day, 2, 7 days?

Thank you in advance for your response,

Dustin S.

Senior Technician and Network Switching Systems Operator / Maintainer.
