I had been working on a document using Documents to go on my tablet.  I had saved it regularly.  The final time I saved it, I got the message that stated something to the effect that the location on the SD card didn't exist and then the document closed.  I can't find.  I've owned the tablet for 3 days and have no idea if there is anything that can be done.  Any help would be appreciated.  Points are high

I don't have this particular tablet, but with many Android devices, you can connect it to a PC and mount the device's storage as a drive letter, and then look at it with a file manager, such as Windows Explorer. If you can't see the file with a file manager, consider some utilities that are designed to recover files from memory cards, such as:

Check the manual again or download the softcopy of the manual from here:
http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201106/20110610070713309/GENERIC_GT-P7510_Galaxy_Tab_10-1_English_USER_MANUAL.pdf

Look at page 11, item 3. It is a Charger/Accessory port that allows you to plug in a USB cable for charging or transferring files. Now look at page 82. It says:

"Downloaded files are stored in the Download directory in your tablet’s internal storage. You can view and copy files from this directory when connected to a computer with a USB cable."
