  • I get this error when opening an excel document across the network.  Using Excel 2003 on 2003 server.  Anyone know what causes this, and how to fix it?
    Thanks, nmclain

  • Not sure this is really the right forum for this question (Excel might be better) but... should check with your IT Admin and have them make sure the server is on-line, the share exists and that you have the proper permissions to both the share and the file in order to open and edit the file.
