Hi guys, By posting this I know I will probably get grilled for complete recklessness and stupidity. The truth is that you will be right. I have no idea how this happened, or even if this is what happened. Anyway, I worked the whole day on a word document without saving, at least that is what should have happened because now all my work is just gone. I have googled for about 2 hours now and tried multiple methods. With no luck. I have office 2007 and tried the following:

-.tmp and .asd and ~ files
- open and repair from windows
and others I can't remember now

If anyone has any advice, I'd appreciate it because I am quite desperate!

If you click on Office>Recent, is there a 'Recover Unsaved Documents' option just to the right of centre at the bottom of the window?
