    Unanswered: Renamed Access Doc, problem

    So I had a user save a copy of there Access document on the shared drive so I could access it to get some things done to it and I had here rename it so it wouldn't overwrite the copy on the shared drive.

    Usually, when I have renamed an Access document and for some reason it changes the documents data, it will prompt me before hand. When she renamed it, it didn't prompt her at all. So when she pasted it to the shared drive it looks like this:

    I tried opening it in Access but nothing happened. I am an idiot and didn't have her back up a copy before I had her do this...she didn't have much data in so it's not a big deal but is there a way to get it back?

    I assume you've tried re-naming it as an access file i.e. 'Carolyn.mdb'?

    I'm a dummy. Thanks.

    Just for a disclaimer, I am brand new to Access and computers in general. I will try to not ask obvious questions but I needed this one really quick to fix something.

    Don't worry - we all had to start somewhere.
