Excel Save / Overwrite?

By HatGuy ·
I'm using MSExcel 2002 SP-2 on a network that backups MY Documents to a network server for off-site ftp access.

After the first save of any file, I get a message box reading "The file 'xxxx.xls' may have been changed by another user since you last saved it. In that case, what do you want to do?" Two check boxes follow: "Save a Copy" "Overwrite Changes", and there are OK and Cancel buttons.

This message comes from EXCEL only but I use Write and other OFFICE components, too. As far as I know, I am the only person with access to my files.

Is there any way to turn off this message? I can see its value for shared files, but that's not my case.

Thanks.

HatGuy,

You might want to check to make sure the server your file is on doesn't have Macintosh Services running. See MSKB 324491.

Hope this helps

My IT people understood what was happening given this answer. The solution to this and other problems was already in the pipeline, scheduled for implementation Summer 2003. So, I'll suffer a little while longer but the answer was very helpful. Thanks.
