      Hi All :

       

      Is there any way we can find out that tableau server has any lock over an excel file which is source of a data extract .I have one user reported that after adding data for the next refresh ,its not allowing user to save the file. user getting a generic error message ,I am attaching error screen shot as well . that location is a shared network drive and tableau run as user account has access to that location (as expected) .User suspects that this is something because of tableau server.

      Any suggestions ?.
