    I have a user that gets a sharing violation error when saving an excel spresdsheet. Below is the email he sent me.

    "Error message say;

    "New_HKK PSI.xlsへの変更は、共有違反のため保存されませんでした。別のファイルに保存して下さい。"

    It means;
    Change of New_HKK PSI.xls was not saved due to sharing violation. Plase save it as different file.

    Then, file named 30AE0900 has been created in the same folder. "


    The file is located on a data server, and he is the only person that has access to it. I don't understand why he would have an error or how to fix it. He is using Office 2003 and XP Pro.

    Thanks in advance.

    Have the user save the file locally (Save As...), and then try copying the file back to the location on the server. Also check the share on the file server, and close any open files that may exist. It's possible the user rebooted the machine or shut it down, and the server thinks the file is still "open".

    I will give it a try and let you know what happens. It may take a couple of days, the user is a Japanese executive, and is very busy.

    It turns out that several (about 4) people use this file. Could it be that someone is not closing it properly?
