If a polyline curved object has been exploded too far, when extruded, the object is displayed with lines where each node is. (not what I want). My question is, can the explode be reversed after the history is lost, or must the construction process be started over again and not exploded too many times.

Have you try'd to Undo (ctrl + z), it should be able to bring you back 100 steps i believe.
You dont say what version/ edition you use, if it is Platinum you should be able to make it like a solid and it will not have all the nodes if you need to redo it.

It's a good idea to write version/ edition in your signature

An alternative solution would be to use the vertex snap points as guides for redrawing the curves.

Thanks for your advice. I have lost history since it was saved and opened the following day. I think the best bet is to follow the advice of just redrawing and starting over...thanks

You should check your Autosave folder for your file - remember to change the filetype to All Files to see drawings with the ASV extension:

OK I'm sure that this is simple but this is what happens, probably a very stupid question......This pattern was created by first drawing a polyline box with a radius top. The arcs were done with an ellipse and then an offset, some horizontal and vertical lines were added. Then a large number of trims were used  to create the panel. The trim tool will not work on the areas where the ellipse and offset ellipse cross (the offset is called a spline at this point?) I am a fairly new user so I am probably going about this all wrong. I have found that exploding down helps to trim.....that then creates the issue with extrusion posted above.
