# Document Is Open?

How can I test whether a document is currently opened by another user?

Hi
Thanks for your inquiry. If you would like to know whether document is opened in MS Word then you can try using the following code:

string fileName = @"Test148\in.doc";
// check whether file exists
if (File.Exists(fileName))
{
try
{
// Try to open file
Stream fileStream = File.Open(fileName, FileMode.Open);
}
catch (System.IO.IOException ex)
{
// Code for handling the IOException.
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
// code for handling other exception
}
}


Hope this helps.
Best regards.
