In Outlook 2000, I received a Word document via e-mail, worked on it and saved it. (Forgot to do a "Save As.") Where is this document now? When I try to access it via the recently used document list in Word, the link doesn't work. I assume and hope it's saved somewhere on my computer, otherwise the program wouldn't have let me save. Any ideas?

Thanks.

First of all, did you open the Word document from Outlook or did you save it to your hard drive?

I opened it from Outlook. I saved it a number of times while I was working on it, but forgot to do a "Save As."

I think that you will find that your document is still attached to the email, but I doubt that any of the changes that you made were actually saved. You may have to open the email again and first save the document to your hard drive and then use that document.

Yeah, you're right. It's nowhere to be found. Thanks, anyway.
