I think that Power Tools may help you but ... work always with document copies !!!

You may be able to hack the -prj but as far as I am aware you have lost the backend script unless you can find a logon that works - do you know what ID's you used?

General practice save a backup before applying security

You may be able to access the code from the -prj, can you reload the document via server etc?

It is a tool you can download from community that can recover lost documents ...

This will only work if you can reload the document In your source folder add a new folder called [YOURQLIKVIEWREPORTNAME]-prj

If you cannot reload then power tools may work albeit unlikely if you cannot reload

Reload look in forlder and open LoadScript.txt

Note editing these files can cause issues.

Make sure you don't have section access on the QVW. If you are using NTFS then add your account to the file. Add your account to the QMC if you are using DMS. Did you make a copy before making any changes?

Hi,

Simple answer is no, there is no way to recover the file. You should always have a backup when working with section access.
