Deleted several contacts

I am using ACT 2013 Premium. I used the look up feature, used ID STATUS, pulled up a group of clients, and somehow deleted them all. Is there any way to get them back?

Re: Deleted several contacts

Get a recent backup

File | RESTORE AS (not simply RESTORE, since that will overwrite your database)

Open the restored backup and create the same lookup that you deleted in your working database.

Export the current lookup to your working database.

Not unless you have a recent backup available.

Re: Deleted several contacts

I know it's not much help but if you look at your own records history tab it will show which records you deleted.
