No.
Save as you go is the only way to do things.

When you close an Access database or exit the Access application you are prompted to save any design changes to Access objects that have been modified.  If you clicked No to the prompt, or if Access was terminated in such a way that you did not receive the prompt, then you won't be able to recover your changes.

The only way I can explain the behavior you are experiencing is that you are somehow working on two copies of the same file.
Do a search on your hard drive for MDB files and I will venture to guess that one of those files has your changes.
Access does not overwrite data the way Word or Excel do. the good news is you probably haven't lost any data. The bad news is you will most likely have to move it from one file to another.
