I have lost the titles and captions from one folder in my current catalog. I cannot restore the whole catalog as it would lose more recent editing. Is there a step by step process specifically for extracting a single folder from an earlier catalog?
thanks, 

Adrian

Thanks Gentlemen,

I have now determined that not all data in the catalog was compromised, ie, only in some sub-folders within the folder. Can I follow the same path you have provided, except to just import the sub-folder?

Once again, thank you.
