I have a user who has office 2003, i upgraded their outlook 2003 to 2007. When the user is in an Excel 2003 document and saves changes, occasionally she will receive a Microsoft Excel message box (not all the time) The message reads; Your changes could not be saved to 'ACCREXP.XLS' becuase of a sharing violation. Excel has created a temporary file with your changes preserved, called '27C2F0000'. Your can save the temporary file as a new name to lose your changes and all future changes. The user will then select to " Save temporary file" , she will save it to her desktop then copy it back to the orginal folder. When the user saves document changes it is saved out on a net work drive. I have installed outlook 2007 onto other user machines with Office 2003, but they are not receiving these errors.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I don’t know if this is what’s causing the problem for you, but I’ve seen several cases where this was caused by anti-virus software. The anti-virus software locks the temp file that Excel creates as the first step
in saving a workbook while it scans it. The temp file doesn’t get unlocked quickly enough so Excel throws a sharing violation error. Try disabling all your dynamic anti-virus scanning and see if the problem goes away.

You say that you do not have the issue on machines with Outlook 2007 – are the machines set up the same way with the same antivirus?

Do you have any spyware scanners running or other active scanning programs?
