Guys my sister didn't save her accounting exam, and I closed the file without saving it, is there any way of getting it back like getting back word documents that you didn't save? Please help.

Try just reopening Excel. It should prompt you saying something like "Recover a file." If it asked you if you wanted to say and then you said "No" then you are out of luck unless a backup was kept.

This learns us all to, always save our work! Like TheTechDude said, Recover file. is there other ways? Maybe, I know this work's for Office 2003, try it on 2007, Go into Excel then Tools>Options>Save and you will find where the autorecover save file is located. You may need to go into your folder options to show hidden files, but I'm sure it was there at one time.
