So I was working on an Excel document a few minutes ago, and I tried to type the word "white". Unluckily, my fingers must have hit one or more of the Ctrl/Alt/Shift keys, since the entire document appeared to just close. I tried to open the document again, but Excel told me that the document was already open and that opening it again would overwrite any changes :) Of course, I said no. I then exited Excel, saying "Yes" when it prompted me to save changes, and then tried to open the document again. Nothing appears. It's like when you make a new document and then press the small grey X in the top right not to exit out of Excel, but to exit out of that document. None of the toolbars have any viable options I could try. All other Excel documents open perfectly fine, and I can make a new document with no problems at all. It seems to me that the old file exists and is still valid, but just won't display the spreadsheet. :)

Is there a way that I can get the document back? I'll be the first to admit that I was an idiot since I didn't save it every other line! :)

PS - I'm using Excel 2003.

Okay, I figured it out. Somehow, I managed to hide the document. Window > Unhide did the trick :)

Handy to note that for future reference -_-
