job failed message

  • Hi, this is the first time I've tried to schedule a job and I keep getting the error message below. I am using the admin account and checking the 32 bit box. Any ideas on how to remedy? Thanks.

  • It looks as if you're trying to open an Excel workbook but another user or process already has it open.


  • Thanks. How is that possible? There is nothing else opened. Am I missing something?

  • There is nothing else opened where?  If the workbook is on a file share, it could be in use by anyone anywhere (depending on how tightly you define your share and NTFS permissions).  Get your Windows people to help you identify who is using it - they may need to use special Windows internal tools to do so.


  • Could it be related to when I saved during the export wizard? I want to run a piece of sql code and have the results export to an excel file is my goal. Just not sure how.

  • I don't know, because I can't see what you can see.  Is changing the name of the file you're exporting to an option?


  • I'm not sure if I'm doing the steps correct. How would I have it run a piece of sql code and export the results? For this I went to the db, right clicked, went to task, export and then saved. I then went to job agent and scheduled using that saved task. Is that correct?

  • Sounds about right.  But then you'll be exporting to the exact same file from your job, and if you still have that file open, it'll fail.  If you don't still have it open, I don't know what to suggest.  Maybe edit the package in Visual Studio and change the file name?  Or you could use bcp and choose a fresh file each time.
