I created an app to track deviations, which was previous done by an Excel file.
Some people still like to use the Excel file and therefore lock it, so my app cannot be used.
Do you know a workaround?
I was thinking that it might be possible before submitting new data via the app to add some more steps in the app:
-lock the file on onedrive
-for all users using the Excel file on onedrive, it will be frozen
-submit information on file
-> Do I have the right approach?
-> Does one of you have experience in this?
Hi @Christian_Pla ,
Do you mean that your app is connected with excel and sometimes it will lock?
If so, your approach is right.
If someone is using the app connected with the excel file , the file will be locked automatically.
You need to make sure that when you use this app, no others are opening this file.
Or else, the app will not perform well.
Yes, that is indeed the problem. But how can I solve it?
I cannot influence that the file is open on a computer. People just forget to close it sometimes.
-> So in my mind, the solution should be handling the access to the file
