Check if a xls file is writable before updating

Postby svilen » Thu Jan 12, 2017 3:36 am

I'm updating a xls file with the following command wfsave(type=excel, mode=update) but the file is open by another user and nothing is updated. The problem is that EV doesn't show any warning that it failed to update the file. I'm not sure whether it is intentional or bug but it will be very helpful if EV rises a warning in such cases.

It's a bug. It will be fixed in the next patch.
