MacBook Pro :: Lost Excel File With System Upgrade

Sep 1, 2014

I have been working on an Excel file for the last month continuously saving at every moment.  At some point something happened and the file name now included a (version 1) after the original file name.  I didn't worry about that because I was able to work on the file and keep on saving my work.  I did some changes yesterday and saved it.  All of a sudden I got a message that there was an upgrade ready to be installed at night.  So I saved the file and did the upgrade. my file was nowhere to be found.  I keep looking at Finder and I can only find a file with a similar name not the one with the (version 1) on it.  I opened that file but it doesn't include any of the changes and updates I have done in the last month.  I never deleted the file and I have double checked on the Trash and its not there.  Is there a way to recover my file? The only thing that I did differently was that I completely powered of my mac as opposed to just closing it.

Applications :: Using Mac Excel - Merge/Filter/Extract Into A Single Excel File?

Feb 6, 2009

I am searching for a plugin, software or a solution for a situation I have with an Excel/Word Mail Merge.

It's a law firm we specialize in DUI/DWI and Reckless Driving defense. We subscribe to a data collection service that pulls data from various court systems around the state. We are then given this data by jurisdiction. The Excel files we receive come with 2 workbooks in one file for Traffic and Criminal arrests data with name, address, reason for arrest, etc, etc.

What I have been doing is opening each Excel file and copying and pasting into a new worksheet only grabbing the DUI and Reckless driving arrests because tis is all I am needing from the various files. I then save the new workbook and do a mail merge with Word from this newly created workbook.

Now my question is there such a plugin or software that will combine all the Excel files I receive from the Data collection house and then be able to filter out only the DUI and Reckless Driving arrests to a single Excel Workbook?

MacBook Pro :: System Update And Lost System Time And Background

Oct 30, 2010

I was asked to performed a system update with a reboot which I proceeded to do. Once the reboot was complete I had lost my system time (which had been reset to December 31, 2000 and my background had been replaced with the original generic MAC background. I have been unable to find the source of this issue and I am unsure how to fix this. I was able to change my clock by adjusting the Date & Time Preferences and fix my background image as well, but I am concerned that this is a temporary fix. Has anyone else experienced this with a system update?

Applications :: Lost Data In Excel 2008

Dec 6, 2010

Some content in Name.xls may not be saved because it is not compatible with the Excel 97-2004 Workbook (.xls) file format. Do you still want to save the workbook in this format? To save the workbook in a new format and preserve all content, click No, and then on the Format pop-up menu, click Excel Workbook (.xlsx). To save the workbook in the current format and remove all incompatible content, click Yes." Somehow I managed to not read the popup properly and just went ahead and saved (clicked "yes"). I then closed the spreadsheet and now all the work from the past 4 hours is gone.

Mac Pro :: Upgrade Video Card Vs Upgrade Entire System?

Jan 28, 2010

I am kicking around between upgrading video card in my 1st gen Mac Pro (2 x 2.66 dual core, 8gb ram) from 7300 Gt to ati 4870 vs. upgrading to a newer system altogether...

Newer MP has 2 x 2.66 quad cores, 12 gb ram with the 4870 card.) What kind of improved performance might I really expect or even notice when using photoshop, light video editing, 3d graphics.

I have not included costs because I want to focus on the performance boosts sans cost for the purpose of this discussion.

OS X :: Updated Software Now Cannot Open Excel File

Oct 22, 2010

I just used software updater this morning (Oct. 22,2010). Now when I go to open an excel file, it appears to open but doesn't. I can open up other excel files. Other people can open up this same file. I even had someone re-save file with new name, and it still won't open. If I open it directly from Entourage, it will open excel, but not the workbook. The workbook isn't hidden, as I've tried to print and unhide workbook, but it's acting as if there's no workbook open. I think this has something to do with the updated software from this week.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Locked Folders Lost After It Upgrade?

May 7, 2012

I bought my MacBook Pro last year. It shipped with Snow Leopard. Since then I have been using File Vault, and within my Library folder, I had one main folder, a sub folder, and a sub-sub folder locked. Never had any problems accessing those folders. Yesterday, I upgraded to Lion and now the "Library" folder does not even show up and is unsearchable.

I tried turning off the Legacy File Vault and it required more disk space than I had available on the main hard drive, so I cloned the HD onto my LaCie 4TB Thunderbolt drive, making a bootable drive, re-booted from LaCie, and de-crypted it on there. This did not make my folder re-appear.Do I need to revert to Snow Leopard in order to see that folder again? De-crypt and then upgrade to Lion?
