Excel Sharing Violation error

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.

Someone else has them open?

Also check if its on a network share, and make sure you have full read AND write permissions to the file.

Also try disabling macros to see if the problem goes away. I remember once we had a excel file that opened up a copy in the background and sometimes didn't close properly (so the hidden copy) wouldn't let you save because 2 were open at the same time.

Let me know!
