Can't open locked file

Recommended Posts

I had save a plan onto a layout sheet and I didn't close it. When I closed the file (same plan)in the plan window, I got a message. Being a dumbo, I didn't read it properly and closed it. Now when I try to reopen the plan I get this message.

"The file appears to be locked. This could be the result of another user or program using the file. This may also result from having insufficient security privileges to access this file."

I have tried everything that my limited knowledge allows and I am still locked out and cannot continue.

I am hoping that there is someone on here who can help out. Thank you in advance

Happy New Year

Regards

Bill Moore

In Explorer, copy and paste to create a new file.  The new file will open.
