Cannot Edit The Macro Because The File Is Locked


Recommended Posts

I think the only time a lock will appear is if the macro file is being edited. If you're the only one this shouldn't be happening. Maybe the recorder locks the file too. Are you sure it's finished?


Try closing ME out and reopening it. If that doesn't work try rebooting.


Is the macro file on a file server? Some of my users running Windows 2000 have been having problems with the Server 2003 doing pre-emtive locks which canonly be cleared by rebooting the server! Just thougth I would toss it out there.

This same thing happened to me a couple months ago. I was told through this Forum that it was a bug in ME that happens once in a while. I wasn't able to get into it or delete it. Thankfully I had copied the key to another file and was able to get into that one, rename it (with different key strokes).
