I found that there is a document cache in the Upload Center. This problem is a result of Office Client setting a 'lock'. The fix in my case was to confirm I was unable to make changes from within SharePoint and then go back to Teams. Open the multitasking screen, touch the Office app, and then swipe to the left or right. I can confirm that this bug which it simply is is still alive in SharePoint 2010. To do that, go to the Review tab.
I opened the document in word browser and wrote some stuff. It has to be downloaded, but can be a life saver. You will need to be able to see hidden files and folders, and also file extensions. Then I can instruct the site administrator how to use it. I never thought to delete that file. Let me know if this doesn't help. If the Office client has never accessed the document before, the entire document will be downloaded from SharePoint and cached in the Office Document Cache.
When opening the file in local Word, the file showed it was being edited offline by said user on 4 different devices. Xue-Mei Chang's answer is technically correct but incomplete and impractical. This would ensure that when you authenitecicated to one of the load balanced nodes you would continue to use this node until the end of the session. Yet when I try to access it for this exact purpose SharePoint won't let me. What I need is for this Personal file in Excel to go back to editable so that they can record the original macro they were planning and others as needed.
Please let me know if someone got exact solution of this issues. It is safe to delete everything you find in this folder. The cause of my case might be different to yours, but I'll tell you what I found regardless. Files can get locked when a client application fails to update the server-side file token that indicates whether a file is currently being edited. Deleting the document from this folder has solved the issue for me.
Shane Powser Is anyone still having this issue? Should specify, this is a file on a file share. If the end user logs back in to the disconnected terminal server session and logs off properly, the Office application is then closed and the file is unlocked. It would say their name for anyone accessing the file. Hi I have an Excel spreadsheet that I share with another local office. . You will see the apps that are currently running on your device. However when i had the problem with a file on our network drive I had to wait a long time before the server finally realised i was not in the file anymoe.
Then return and disable it. This locks the file, preventing any further editing. In our case the first user with the file open is on Excel 2007; the second user is on Excel 2010; perhaps there's some incompatibility which causes the second user's Excel to be unable to get the real name. I feel for you guys. Fortunately, there is a way to kick the user out of the file remotely.
Click on Insert, select Module. My users immediately try to open the same document again, and it works. On your iPhone, use the backspace key to delete the current name, and then enter the new one. Can Powershell clear those values so the file can be edited? If it is not in use, quit all instances of Word, and then remove the owner file. Here will show you 3 ways, and it is sure to help you get rid of this tiresome password problem.
It is locked by me, but I can manage to view it once in a while and close out - I do see other users on it as well in Word client and Word Online. This suggestion should fix the issue. Deleting that temporary file fixed it for me. To reiterate from before, I received messages that somehow the system thought I was personally responsible for the lock out and I was unable to control this file. Is there something that can be done to clear this file lock? The same goes for Powerpoint and Excel. From my personal experience, I've found a combination of the first and third point above can recreate this error quite constantly.
