  • Hello,

    you said : "Because I need duplicate files."

    you can't have 2 document with the same name in a document library

    for your first trouble, is the document you want to update check out by another user?

  • Yes, You are correct.We can't have documents with same name in document library.

    But while uploading the same document in the document library by unchecking the overwrite if exists checkbox we should not get "server error",instead it should display some user friendly message for ex:File already exists.

    How can we achieve this?

    Thanks,

    Krishna

  • Can you check the log file?

    Are you using the system account or a user account?
