*Headdesk* *Headdesk*

I just realized that I have spent the entire day working on the wrong version of the document I'm supposed to have ready by Monday.

*Headdesk* *Headdesk* *Headdesk*

Okay. Breath in. Breath out.

The worst that can happen is that I'll have to come work on Sunday.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Ahh! Go outside, walk a block, take a deep breath, and scream as loud as you can! You'll feel much better. :)

(This is one reason I think every employer should have a gym in the basement for employees--stocked with lots of punching bags!)

I just did that. Plus chocolate. I keep emergency almond Kisses for such an eventuality :-)

That blows - been there, done that.

If it's in Word, and you have 2007 (ok, maybe in 2003 too, but I don't remember using it) - you could run compare docs between the version you were supposed to change, and the one you did change, to merge your changes into that one instead?

Can't do that. I am working in two languages, and adding revisions that include additional paragraphs from one language to another that will appear in tables. Those are comments by different delegations that need to appear in there, separate from everything, to be considered by 34 countries. :-p

I am making good progress though.

Actually, thanks for the comment. I was rather frazzled. I might have been able to do the compare document, but there was so much going on, I didn't really wasn't sure I would not lose info.

Disaster has been averted, although I will still need to go back on Sunday just to make sure the info is all there ;-)
