My vba code in an MSAccess application

xmlhttp.Open "PUT", sharepointFileName, False, username, pw
xmlhttp.Send sBody

is returning xmlhttp error 409 CONFLICT for each text file that is sent to a SharePoint 2010 doc library. The library I am writing to is empty and I have full control rights. Last week this code worked correctly with no errors. The SP administrator knows of no changes on the server end since last week. Can anybody suggest what "Conflict" this could possibly refer to?

Hi,

I had a look around on the web and found this article:

http://www.infinitec.de/post/2006/04/Workaround-A-status-of-409---conflict-is-received-when-adding-an-attachment-to-a-mail-via-WebDAV.aspx

It looks like this happens when you create a docuemtns and then try to put another docuemnt in this docuemnt ( like the first document was a folder)

Your case is probably slightly different, but it does mean that it's probably nothing to do with access rights. Probably more like your doing somthign which is not valid.

Have you tried different document libraries? Do you maybe have a content type issue ( e.g. putting an item in a document library or a document in a list)

The problem resolved itself - evidently there was some sort of problem on the server. It was never identified, but everything is now working correctly.
