SQL File Sharing Violation Error When Trying to E-mail Schedules


When trying to e-mail schedule information to employees, sometimes a SQL error indicating a “File Sharing Violation” is displayed. This prevents the e-mail wizard from operating normally.

Note: This only occurs when the Schedule file is located on a network share.
