Problems Automatically Loading 123 Worksheet

Following your Basic Tip in the HP Palmtop Paper of Sep/Oct 93, page 51, I successfully renamed my STOCKS.WK1 file as AUTO123.WK1. However, for some reason, I found it impossible to open other .WK1 work sheets. By renaming AUTO123.WK1 back to STOCKS .WK1, all the data was deleted, which really is a disaster as I kept track of all my stock movements on the HP 95LX. What possibly may have gone wrong?

[After receiving your letter I tested this tip again on the 95LX and had no difficulties. After creating an AUT0123 .WK1 file I was able to open up other .WK1 files, and open the AUT0123.WK1 file again. I renamed the files and tested again with no problems.

It is difficult to identify the exact cause of the lost files. It is easier to damage files on the 95LX than on the 100/200LX. The only real security on any computer system is make sure that your data files are backed up regularly and that you have copies in more than one place. We get used to the reliability of HP's Palmtops, and forget to take the time to back it up. Although it's no consolation, all of us here at Thaddeus Computing have lost files -- Robert Roney.]
