Well, it happened again. This is the third time in about 10 years I have lost a report with a corrupt file. I was 5 minutes from completing it and the entire file went corrupt. ALL OF YESTERDAYS work was lost. Backup file also corrupt. Carbonite failed to make a copy. Needless to say, Im not a happy camper. ACI could not retrieve the file. To prevent this from happening go to Options, then enviornment, and file management. Make sure the second line "Place copy of report file in" is checked. I put it in my documents. ACI, in its wisdom,never told me to check this option, even after I lost previous reports. They wanted to save file space on my computer. AARGH!!!
