I receive following error message when trying to write an Excel File to Sharepoint Online: “The resource has been checked-out by another user”. I technically knows what it means, I am familiar with the “check-in/check-out” term of Sharepoint, but the file that I want to overwrite on Sharepoint is definately checked in. So I am wondering whether the issue could be somewhere else located. Also connecting to Sharepoint seems to work fine, so really dont know what the issue is here.
Had you tried removing the file and adding it back? Are you seeing this same issue with other files?
yes, I tried both connecting to a different file and also deleting and recreating the original one. For some reason, I always get the error message that the file is checked out.
I am struggling to re-create this issue. I am not sure if this might be a security setting on the sharepoint side (not a heavy Sharepoint user) such as needing to checkout prior to editing, or if you need certain rights to edit. I also am not seeing any other material facing this issue you are facing. Could you try reaching out to your Sharepoint admin and see if they can shed more light on why it is refusing to fetch these files?
Apologies wish I could be of more help.
