I was working in an excel document and clicked out of it. When it asked me to save the document I said yes and lost all my original work but saved the new. I know I should have clicked "Save as" but I didn't. Is there any way to retrieve that original?

Thanks :biggrin:

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

No, not as far as I know, bad luck!

Unless you had created a Windows Restore Point that fell between the creation of the original workbook and your editing of it.

Extremely long shot, but you didn't email a copy to anyone by any chance?
