Status messages of Office files opened from a network location RRS feed

  • Question

  • When a user of mine tries to load a file saved on the network that is already being edited by another user, she gets a message that states the file is locked, open in read only mode.  This is expected.  However, randomly the user will receive messages stating that the file location cannot be found, check the spelling or try a different path.  Any ideas why the message changes like this?  I tested this on my machine and received both messages.

  • Hi,

    -  This problem might occur if network file control cannot release, you can take ownership of file test if it works, visit this website for more info: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753659.aspx

    -  And also check network shared folder permission, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc726004.aspx

    -  Test with network location, you can create a network place in Windows Vista or Windows 7, follow these steps:

    1.  Click the Start button then click Computer.
    2.  Right-click in the Computer window and then click Add A Network Location.
    3.  Follow the steps on the Add Network Location Wizard pages to create a link to the
    network place.
    After you add a network location, you can access documents and folders on the network
    place from within Word.

    Best regards.
