Hello there,

I have a friend who open XLSX document and edited it in Open Office.
Then he just clicked save and closed it.

He did not know he must first select save as or open it from know location. Now he does not know where it is located. I tried using search for the whole disk with *.xlsx parameter and all I can fined is files without the changes.

Can you please sugget to me how to find his file. He uses Windows XP if that is importan.

Regards.

An obvious question ....
Are you sure it not showing in "Recent Files" or whatever it's called in Open Office?

If it is there, but is unedited, then I can only suggest that your friend did not actually save the file
and merely closed it.

You could search for *.xl*

I have found the document now. The problem is because he opened it again from email and it overwritten the changes he made in the same document.
