SharePoint 2010 / SQL Server 2008 R2
One of my users reported a problem opening files yesterday. Upon opening a file she would receive this string of error messages:
Clicking "Retry Open" leads to:
Then clicking "OK" brings up:
Clicking "OK" there just leaves you with Excel (or whatever the appropriate program) at a dark grey background without a document loaded.
I've split up my site collection by departments and each departments' document libraries are on their own content databases. This problem is only occurring in the Operations CDB. I can replicate the errors on my machine.
Here's where things get more interesting- If I open Windows Explorer and navigate to the parent folder of that .xlsx file and then rename the file (or create a copy with a unique name) then that renamed (or copied) file will open just fine. You can then rename either of those files to the original file name and it will once again fail to open.
What's going on here?
