Unable to open or create file ... Permission denied

Avatar

Level 2

I'm a new user of LC Designer ES.  After creating and saving a form, I made changes and now cannot save.  Error message in Log tab of Report palette says "PDF generated successfully.  Unable to open or create file [file name] Permission denied."  Any ideas why this would happen, and how to fix?

Thanks for any help.

If the file is already opened in another application (like Acrobat or Reader) then you wodul not be able to save it as those apps put a lock on the form.

I didn't think I had it opened separately when I tried to save it, but you must be right since I can now save it.  Thanks for the quick answer.
