Uncommitted data

The most important of all possible users did work in Filemaker this afternoon.  I believe he finished typing in a Notes field, left his cursor where he stopped typing (i.e. did nothing that would have committed the record), closed (but did not shut down) his laptop, and walked out the door, at or after which point, of course, he severed his internet connection and his access to our network.

 

There is a record for the Note, populated with the PK, the fk, his name, and today's date. There is nothing in the notes field.

 

My inexperienced question:  If Filemaker is still open, is there any chance the note would be saved in any form, anywhere?  I'm guessing not, but I would feel remiss if I did not ask.

 

(I may or may not vomit in the trash can.  I have spent months coaxing this user along.  He just started using the database about two weeks ago.  This is not exactly going to inspire confidence, especially since he's messaged me twice saying "FIlemaker won't even open now.")
