Recently I reqested my home office to open our Access database and use the "Anaylize with Excel" feature (so our office mgr could email me a copy of the database in Excel). To her horror the next time she opened Access the entire database (5500 names) had all of the LastNames replaced with First Names! In other words we now have an entire Access database with two fields of FIRST NAMES as the LAST NAMES have vanished into thin air! Any suggestions on how to recover data (i.e. maybe it is still in Access) would be much appreciated!
