After 4 1/2 hours of working on a very complex spreadsheet I copied to a different worksheet to use data. I decided it would work better if I began again so I deleted to new sheet and returned to the original to copy again---it was BLANK!! The only thing that I can figure is I must have hit Cut instead of Copy. Needless to say there has been a lot of "blue air" and beating myself about the head.
Does anyone know of ANY way to salvage the lost worksheet??

Assuming you hadn't used copy & paste in the meantime you could have pasted it back.
But if you hadn't saved the work and you'd used copy & paste in the meantime, there's no way to get it back now.

Moral of the story - save and save often!

only thing I can think of is if you didn't copy anything else after copying/cutting the original stuff. If you didn't copy anything else after then it might still be copied to the clipboard, as Neil Jones suggested. Other than that I don't know what you could do.
