WindowsXP machine. Office97 installed.
I got a new XP desktop machine and installed some software from my old 98
machine. Once of which was office 97. Now I get some errors on my new
machine. I did the default install. The error I'm getting for excel is
strange. It doesn't matter what file I open, It could be a new attachment
in email and I'm opening it for the first time or something I've created and
The error is this: A document with the name "filename" is already open.
You cannot open two documents with the same name, even if the documents are
in different folders. To open a second document, either close the document
that's currently open, or rename one of the documents.
I do not have any other documents open on the machine. I even have done a
find and there is nothing opened or even listed with the same name anywhere
on the machine.
Anyone have any ideas what this error means and how I can get rid of it? I
get a similar error in word also saying the admin is using the file, and
there is no other doc or anything open.
