Could anyone tell me why on ocassion Inventor tells me that the file I am working on is checked out by another user and that I cant save the changes. I find this a bit bizzare as I am the only person in the office using inventor although it is installed in other machines. I realise that all I have to do is steal the checkout, but I would really like to understand why it does this.

you might be using the multi project setting of the INV and other persons might have opened it and saved from there PC. so it acquires there name and it shows you that it has been checked out. You can remove that y using the single user project function. rahul "James Robertson" wrote in message news:41c0046b$1_3@newsprd01... > Could anyone tell me why on ocassion Inventor tells me that the file I am > working on is checked out by another user and that I cant save the changes. > I find this a bit bizzare as I am the only person in the office using > inventor although it is installed in other machines. > > I realise that all I have to do is steal the checkout, but I would really > like to understand why it does this. > > Cheers > > -- > James Robertson (Media Manager) > > Zeroth Technology Ltd (ZERTECH) > Unit 11 Blackburn Ind Est > Kinellar > Aberdeenshire > AB21 0RX > > Tel: +44(0) 1224 790330 > Fax: +44(0) 1224 790430 > > Web: www.zertech.com > >

I too have experienced this problem. We have many user of inventor and are working in Semi-isolated. The file is not open or checked out to anyone else, but Inventor still says that it is. I have also opened a file that is located in my working directory and when I go to the file status, it shows that it needs to be resolved, even know the file was previously checked in and then out. On two occasions, the file has been completely removed from my working directory. The file just disappeared and was not located in the working directory or the resolved directory.
There are definitely issues with "Semi-isolated" projects.

James,
Does it say who it's checked-out to? I occasionally get the same message as you, only to find out that it's already checked out - to ME! Go figure. I'm getting better at remembering to check things in before I close, but not always...

If you get stuck and in a hurry, there is a program in my web site for releasing the checkouts. http://www.cbliss.com/inventor/iCode aldayna wrote: >James, >Does it say who it's checked-out to?

On a recent contract job with a customer, I have experienced this with shared mode also. My checkout name is "DLJ", and oftenwhen I reopen a file that I have worked on the day previous, and I get the error message that "this file is checked out by "DLJ" and cannot be saved. Fixable, but irritating none the less.... Dennis Jeffrey Inventor 9 SP1 droopy wrote: >I too have experienced this problem. We have many user of inventor and are working in Semi-isolated.
