Lost a file

Occasional Visitor

I was working on a file in Excel in the past week and now it will not open.  It states we can not find the document ----- .   Is it possible it was moved, renamed, or deleted.  To the best of my knowledge, I closed it as I always do.  How can I open this.  Your help is appreciated.  Thanks

Its highly likely it was mistakenly deleted....or corrupted, maybe due to virus or system crash. it does happen. try checking if you can locate the temp file. i think its located somewhere along this file path::
"C:\Users\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\UnsavedFiles"
or
"C:\ Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temp"
or
"C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp"

you can try reopening them from there.
or if you have a software recovery, that can come in handy in this kind of scenario.

Hope this helps.
