Roll Back to an AutoSaved Version

Problem: I need to roll back to an AutoSaved version. I screwed up something that I can not fix with the 64 levels of Undo.

Strategy: Go to the Excel 2010 File menu and choose the Info pane. If any autosaved versions are available, they will be listed under versions.

Additional Details: When you open an AutoSaved version, it will open as read only. The info pane will alert you that it is not the most recent version. The message bar in Excel will allow you to make that version the current version.
