Saving to a Network Drive in Excel.

By Dan Harmeson ·
Im on an NT network and am trying to save a document to a shared network drive. It seems to take forever and I get this message.....

The System was attempting to transfer file data to buffers to \I:\sris1dc\materials\central services\MONTH END\ea972100. The write operation failed, and only some of the data may have been written to the file.\

then the file has not been saved at all.

it may be that the file name length is too long. try saving to a mapped drive that is directly linked to the destination folder, rather than through such a long folder path.

Hope this helps

Check the network drive to make sure you have enough room on it and sufficient rights to it. Also, check the network traffic to make sure the file transfer isn't being interrupted and corrupted. Does this happen on any other file? If not, the file may be corrupted.

You may have a currupted file.
Open the file do a Ctrl+a and then Ctrl+c.
Open a new excel file and do a Ctrl+v.
Save the new file to the desired location.
If this works then just get rid of the old file and of course keep the new one.
