A form I have been working on has somehow gone away.

I'd like to restore it from a recent backup, but don't want to restore everything as some data in tables have changed.

Which file name extension are forms stored under?

before doing anything, try doing file/database compact.

this will rebuild the data dictionary index.

does that cause the form to reappear?

if not, then the forms, reports, operations, etc. are all stored in the .ddd, .ddm and .ddx files with the same name as the table.

in the case of a set, the form, reports, operations are in files called .set, .sem and .sex

Thanks Selwin,

The compact didn't work so I restored the set files.

All seems okay now.
