Hi

Just installed new IBM server with Novell netware 6.7

After that my users gets the this annoying warning message in Excel...

The file (filename.xls) may have been changed by another user since
you last saved it. In that case, what do you want to do?
Save a copy
Overwrite changes

Does anybody know if its a office 2007 problem or problem whith the server. I tried to change File Commit too On and File Caching to off, that did not help. Office is fully patched...

I have googled around and found this solution, but maybe there is an easier:

The file (filename.xls) may have been changed by another user since
you last saved it. In that case, what do you want to do?
Save a copy
Overwrite changes

To get rid of this, follow these steps:

Go to the following key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\10.0\E xcel\Options


Create new DWORD Value with the name QFE_Saskatchewan.


Set the value to 2 to have Excel always flush the file cache before obtaining the time stamp. This should resolve the problem most of the time. Or, type 1 to have Excel disable the time stamp check and suppress the dialog in every case.



Note Microsoft do not recommend disabling the time stamp check.


Re-start Excel to have the setting take effect for that user.

Please help
