Hi Jon

If you are using XP, you might try doing a 'system restore' just before your 
Q's all disappeared.

That happened to me once and when I did the restore, the Q's were back.

If you made any Q's  after 1800, you would need to save those before doing 
the restore as they will probably be gone.  73 and GL
