    Of course you can recover your report......
    ...from your backup. If you haven't split the data ffom the user interface then import the report from the back up mdb/accdb

    What? You dont have a backup?
    In which case then you need to re create the report...
    ...and learn hiw to sleep easy at night by taking regular backups andprove those backups are 'good'. Ie usable noncorrupted....
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    The database is on a server that is its backup once a day. The report was created and deleted between backups, around 4 hours of labor. I wondered, if it was possible to find by other means, ex: is there a sort of buffer? Note that I still did'nt compact the DB.

    There may be some way of recovering the report by letting some third party analyse the db. However in my experience these services are fairly expensive and not always succesful. I doubt it will be worthwhile on a report even if it did take around 4 hours to create.
    Im not aware of any software that will recover this for you... doesn`t mean there isnt something out there just im not aware of any.

    Whenever i do development work i always take copies prior to making changes.

    Thank, i'm resigned to start over, at least, it will be easier to do it the second time.
