Problem in uploading word document in share point server

  Asked By: Tameka    Date: Jul 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2217

I am doing an application that will watch a particular directory
/folder (FileSystemWatcher) and upload the files and folder that are
added or modified in that directory to the share point server.

Here when the word document in client machine is opened even then it
is saved in the watching directory,the file is not uploaded to the server.

Sometimes it takes ~$test.doc as the filename .Even if got the
filename test.doc as correctly,the server returns an error 'The file
is used by another process'

Can any one suggest me what the actuall problem is,Whether we can
overcome this or not.If so how to overcome.

Such a file  name means that somebody has currently opened  the file and
is reading it. You should let the user release the file lock before
trying to upload  it.

i get this error  in SPS when i try to add document  to
document libarary:
This form is not available for this list, discussion
board, survey, or document library.
If this problem  persists, please contact your

i check in the internet for solution but all what i
get is to delete that web part and recreated and that
is not solution.

and i read that the reson for this problem is :

The issue may occur if the Upload.aspx file  is deleted
from the document library.

That's correct. If you tend to delete any files  within the folder  'FORMS' in a
doc library you will get the below error  message.

The only workaround is to move the files and recreate a new doc  library and
upload it.
