Re: Excel file is locked by another User Error in flow

Hi @saaleullo 

 

Thi sgenerally happens when the excel sheet is open in an EDIT mode in any of your browsers tabs or on another users tab who has access to the file. Can you confirm that the excel is not open in any of your tabs? You can try closing the current browser window and start a fresh session as this might be due to a caching problem too. 

 

Hope this Helps!

I can confirm that the file is not open in any browser or in my system anywhere.

But still it gives the error as file is locked.

Can you try deleting the current connection to excel online and create a new one and try again?
