NPritning Report Task failed because file already open

Hi Guys,


  • I have an excel report which gets published twice a day on a network folder.
  • This file is used by 4 to 5 users.
  • File has dynamic name as 'YYYY-DD-Report'
  • It gets overwritten every time with latest data.

Problem : If that spreadsheet is already open in any computer then the nPrinting Report task fails.

What is the possible solution to prevent this ? so even when the file is opened somewhere then nPrinting can still overwrite it !
