Dear Notes expert,

I have a funny situation happening here with my Lotus Notes 6.5 client and opening attachments. If I open an attachment say in word or excel, it opens two copies, one message stating that it is already opened a spreadsheet with my name do i want to save the copy as read only. How can I prevent this from happening?


Thanks,

Bud

Uninstall the office app and reinstall... this would fix some of the registry issues that might be leading to this kind of problems...

If you still havethe problem after install, please describe AN EXACT SCENARIO.

Log in to Windows, don't open any programs
Start Notes
Find messages with .DOC attachment
Etc., etc.

Please describe the exact name of teh file you tried, and the exact text of any messages or dialogs.
