Finding an autosaved excel file after a crash

Win98 locked up on me in the middle of some work, forcing me to ctrl alt del restart. The saved version of my excel file is missing everything since the last save. If I remember correctly there should be a more complete version of the file autosaved somewhere - unfortunately I'm not sure where.

Any ideas?

It should have opened imediately after your comp rebooted itself, however, did you save any part of the excel file? if so, try searching for it, if not try the temp folder, not sure if it will work though.
