Annoying message "Excel file is currently in use..."
Posted on 2014-08-08
Recently in the last couple of months I've been getting an annoying pop up whenever I am working with XLSX files. The XLSX files are stored on the LAN.
The pop up shows the following message below:
'filename.xlsx is currently in use. Try again later.
In many cases, I have to click the OK button dozens of times to get it to stop - which is very annoying.
So, I have 3 questions:
1 - When it says "... Try again later." - Try WHAT later?
2 - What is causing this to happen?
3 - How can I stop it or turn the message off?
Running Office 10 on Windows 8 Pro, 64bit - Dell Precision T7600
TIA for your help.
