  • Might i suggest (if you're IT staff in an operational environment such as a service centre) that if a user calls up with this you ask them the following question...

    Does the name of the document you are trying to open start with "~$" and is the icon pale and greyed out.

    Yes, seriously. I've had this error triggered a number of times by users trying to open temp files. Point them to the correct file. Accept their heartfelt thanks.
