We are able to open a specific excel spreadsheet from a server update it and save it locally on a laptop but we are unable to save it on the server. it is only one specific spreadsheet that has this problem, all of my other excel spreadsheets I can open/update/save on the server without issues. This problem began after a power outage that caused my PC to shut down. Can you help me find the solution? Using Windows 10 and Office 2016

I have had this experience too. For me, it was caused by Windows deciding it needed to reboot overnight after an update.

The only solution was to delete the copy on the server (for me it was a NAS) from WITHIN the server. Then save your local copy back to the server

If you try and delete the server version from your local machine it doesn't work (or didn't for me). The server[/NAS] version had some sort of lock on the file.
