One wrong click of a button and data goes bye bye!!
So, I have a database on my computer on Excel which lists what soap formula I used, what fragrance I used, the date that the soap was made, and any notes or comments. Well, I decided to start a similar one for Lotion making. So I took my soap one deleted all the info except for the heading and column titles. I started to fill in my two entries for my lotions. And then I hit SAVE, not SAVE AS, but SAVE. Yup, that's right I just wiped out all my data since November 2009! O H M Y G O D !!!! This list is really important to me because it's my soap making history.
So, I have, for the past 4 hours tried to extrapolate my list. I have some printed recipes, I have some soap labels with ingredients and fragrances listed. I have an old list of half of 2010 productions. And I have my blog. Tediously, I was able to re-create my database. I have lost all of the comments that I made regarding each batch. Bugger!! At least I was able to get the recipes down and the dates of creation. Whew! At least not ALL was lost.
