Here is the scenerio...

I had one excel file open and wanted to open another one. I clicked on File-save as- and saved the file with the same name and at the same location. It asked me whether I want to replace the file and I clicked 'yes'.

I was not attentive while I was doing this as I was on the phone. Finally, I realised that the contents of the cuurent file are manipulated one and I wanted to Undo them. I wanted to have the previous data and tried to Undo them but cannot.

Is there anyway I can get back my original file.

I have Win XP and Office 2000

Please reply soon I had very important data.

If you have saved over a prior worksheet with new data, and have not made a backup of the original, there is no practical way of restoring the original worksheet. The undo function only applies to unsaved data.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
