OK, so I'm using Works on an 8 year old PC running Vista but don't call me a neanderthal.

I was just updating a Spreadsheet in Works and when I clicked to save it I got a message about "unable to save as write disc protected" or something like that. However, I was pretty sure that I'd already saved the document so I just closed the program. :facepalm:

But I've now gone to open the spreadsheet file again and it isn't in the folder. (gulp!)

I have searched for the file and it shows up with the correct path details as to where it was located but if I click on the search item it says the file specified in the Target box is not valid and to check the path or file name.

So, to get straight to the point - HELP!
