I get this message sometimes when working with Excel spreadsheets. What I found out is that I had a bad formula between worksheets and the Palm didn't know what to do with it so it locked the file until I fixed it on my desktop and resynched.

You will probably have to erase the memory to the TX and reload the software to fix it.

To erase the TX memory, press the reset button. At the boot screen hold down the power button. Confirm deletion. Reload software from CD.

I have Quicken 2007, MAC. Getting error message" "File is locked, transactions will not be saved" Never had this before.

This is due to a corrupt file. If you have a backup on .MAC or on your disc, open the older file. You may need to update transactions, etc.

Cannot "save" quark 6.5 files, have to "save as" and rename

Have you tried the following

it could be that the file is locked go the file and single click on it go to the file menu and select get info. see if the file is locked, if it is unlock it

or do a "save as" in Quark and rename the file

it may be that when you have transferred your files that the permissions are not set properly. do the same as the file is locked above but look to see whether you are the owner and whether you have read write permissions. If you don't change or add yourself as the owner.

Hope this helps.

We are experiencing issues within the AS-5000 transcription software for our Olympus DS-5000 recorders. When a typist selects the status of the file (''pending'', ''finished'', etc.) an error message pops...

This is a know issue of the initial releases of DSS Pro 5. Downloading the update (using the Update option inside the software) will not really fix it, but will at least give you an option to override the Locked status. This "fix" appears from update 5.0.5

P6 locks up when opening a project

The software knows whether the file is in use by creating a "lock file". When you "fix" a locked file it usually means the software deletes the file that prevented access your file/document and not that it dropped the user currently using that file instead of you. The software only allows you to fix a locked file, because rarely the software makes a mistake and does not clear the lock file. While it assumes you've verified you're right and it's wrong. In my experience, the file is actually in use either by a system process, through a remote account, or by a user you just couldn't locate. The software locking up when you force the deletion of the lock file is always the result of a read/write error. This is usually a good indication two sources are in fact trying to utilize the same file.

Locked file

The folder lock can oly be solved by chosing the option "format" in the sub-menu. But please copy the *.dss - files still resting at your card at your harddisk first.
When the recorder finishes the format procedure, all folders will be unlocked again.

The "Read-Only-Failure" will occur again at recorders with differend user profiles, when you put the switched-off recorder into the docking station first and switch the power button to "on". So avoid this constellation!
