hello.
i am trying to write using xlswrite().
a new company Office version has been insatlled: 1811 (Build 1109.20079).
the function fails and I repeatedly get a comment that the file is already opened by another program.
any help will be greatly appreciated!
thanks!!

thanks madhan,
indeed this was my first assumption but it's not that.
i understand that an auto-backup s/w has also been installed and IT is the culprit.. when i disable it, xlswrite works - some Office service issue..
thanks again for your quick response!!

Hi,
Restart your PC and then change the directory of your file. Load the file now and check it.
