Excel Sharing Violation error
Posted on 2011-03-07
When I try to save an Excel template sheet to a job number, the message I get is:
‘your changes could not be saved to ‘7000.xls’ because of a sharing violation. Try saving to a different file.’
I press ‘OK’ and it has changed the file name to something random with letters and numbers and then it lets me save it under that name.
If I try and change the file name back to 7000 it then says ‘cannot save Y:/Work Order Estimates 7000.xls. The folder is marked as read only’.
This is only random spreadsheets, some are ok in the same location.
