HELPPP ASAP - WORD MUCKED UP WHILE DOING CWK - DESPERATE


R

Ronen Feiner

I was typing i went to change the font, it said some sort of message like
there was not enough memory or something along those lines ... i pressed ok
and then the screen got tiny and i thought that everything would be ok i
would go back to my last auto save piece and jsut carry on. that wasnt the
case i exited to see if the box on the side would come up with last saved by
auto recover but it hasnt. Which means i have lost 16 hours worth of work (i
no i should have saved as i went along but didnt). is there anyway to still
open up the last auto save which should have been every 10 minutes please
someone get back to me! thank you

Not to kick you when you're down, but it's no wonder it was
overwhelmed if it was trying to remember 16 hours of typing (so you
could Undo it all). When I don't remember to Save on my own (and it's
set for 1 minute rather than 10 minutes), I do so manually whenever I
notice the Autosave doing a save.

There is no autosave in Word? There is only save recovery information, which
is somewhat hit and miss and setting autosave recovery information to 1
minute can seriously hamper your productivity. If you want true autosave
(which frankly would be very annoying) you need a macro. See

No idea what you're saying. When Word crashes (which it does rather
less frequently these days), upon reopening it gives me a "recovered"
file that's correct up to the last point it Autosaved.

Yes, that is AutoRecovery. That is not the same as an automatic save, which
would protect you not only from catastrophe but also from stupidity. See

As I said, I do save frequently -- when I notice the (ok) AutoRecover
doing its thing. No need for the "reminder" mentioned at the bottom.
As with those who operate without the paragraph marks showing, I don't
see how it could be done any other way.

No aspersions on you. But the article was written to dispel the illusions of
those who work on a document for 16 hours without saving even once.

Hi,

I think you can try a utility called Advanced Word Repair to repair
your Word document. It works rather well for my corrupt Word
documents. Its web address is http://www.datanumen.com/awr/

Ronen beware: this message from "m..." or "Alan" is spam.

Everyone else: the date in "Alan"'s introductory line is in Chinese
characters (which you would only see if you have Chinese installed on
your system).
