Hello. Is there a way to check if a Word Document is opened by another user?
I’m pulling data from a database and outputting it to labels (in VB .NET). I noticed that the program will fail if someone has the file opened. Is there a way to check before the writing is attempted?
Thanks for your request. You can try using try/catch. For example see the following code.
// Try to open document
Document doc = new Document(@"Test194\in.doc");
// process document
catch (IOException ex)
// Do something
Okay. I wasn’t sure if there was another way or not. THanks for the reply!
