Description of the issue

while in Layout mode, I double clicked on a field to bring up the Field/Control Setup box, I chose Check Box Set from the Control Style options, I selected a simple Yes/No values list previously created, upon switching from Layout to Browse, the Save Changes box appeared, I thought I clicked OK, result was that all of my fields appeared on the screen regardless of which tab they were from --> a mess, and hours worth of work forming tabs and fields appears to be lost.  I don't want to have to redo 'years' worth of work.  Anyone had a similar experience? Did you 'retrieve' the file in its proper form?
