Excel - 2007 (.xlsx) open as read only

IE67NETAPP

We have a NetApp Filer (FAS-2240A) and implemented a CIFS shares. My Data ONTAP Version is 8.1.1.

Users are complaining that if they tries to open excel-2007 files from CIFS, it shows a warring message saying that the file is already open by "UNKNOWN-USER". I tried to search on web but couldn't get fix for that. It only happens with (.XLSX) files.

Does anyone facees such issue?

Hello,

 

I have the same problem you. With Mac OS X, the .xlxs files open read-only. Or the excel program closes itself. I used Office2011 or 0ffice2016.

The problem is less frequent with .xls files.

 

Did you find the solution ?
