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...
