Wasn't aware of that. Even Notepad lets you Undo an Undo.

If the document was previously saved, and the [Undo} was the first thing you did since re-openning it you should be able to simply close it and select [No] when asked if you want to save the changes.

Also, Assuming that the document was previously saved, reopen another instance of the same document.

In any case, to be safe I would copy anything that is still showing in the doc and paste it to a new doc to preserve what is left.

In the future I would save doc contents as often as is practical. Or using Notepad.

Wish I could be more helpful. Perhaps posting the problem in the Mocrosoft Office forum will get better responses.
