    Hello,

    I have a client who is running an xl2003 application (os windows 2000) on anumber of laptops in his office. Simply stated, the application (master) opens a data workbook, transfers the info into the master sheet, then closes the data workbook. The master data is updated/manipulated, then saved asa file, overwriting the original data workbook.

    Mostly this is working well, but occasionally he’s ending up with a temp 8 digit file plus a corrupted data file (original). The 8 digit file is Ok.Seems to be happening on any of the computers.

    I’ve run this application on my system endlessly, and I cannot replicate the problem.

    Did a lot of searching on the Internet, found a lot of good stuff, including a very interesting post by Dave Peterson, stating that antivirus softwareand/or network errors can interrupt the save process.

    Which may explain part of the problem, but I don’t understand why the original file is becoming corrupted in my scenario. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Regards,

    DaveU
