Saving Access File

P: n/a
I have a few question. I spent an hour working in Access, and when i
printed out what i like, i closed it, and try to open again, but it
seem as though there are tons of files that i saved, and i don't know
which is the one that i worked on, can some one help me get this file
back so i could edit it. Thanks for all of your help.

Open Explorer and find files with an MDB extension. Sort the list by date.

Did you work on several databases or just one?

Normally Access stores everything that belongs to one database in just
one big file with an extension of .mdb

You can also explicitly export Reports etc as separate files, these
will be wherever you saved them.

If you dont know which database you were working on, try the list of
recently opened databases in the File menu for a low-tech solution.
Hope that helps,
Elmar
