    When opening an Excel file in a SharePoint document library, my co-worker gets the following message:
    "This file has been moved. We recommend saving it now to finish moving it." With options for Save and Later. But the file hasn't moved at all.
    It is not affecting me on my machine but does if I log in to his machine, which suggests it's something local. Any ideas? It's annoying to have to save the documents every time he opens them. Thanks!

    It may be a permissions issue, so it would be best to speak with the person who administers the SharePoint server and have them check.

    I'd be surprised if it's a perms issue. I logged in on my co-worker's machine as me and got the same error. I haven't tried having my co-worker log in on my machine but I'll wager it works.
