Error Message: " The Work Book was not saved"

Hi Experts

I met a very strange issue when saving work book.

We have one workbook. (We call it A)

When we save A, it shows error message: "The workbook was not saved".

Then we checked SU53, it shows error message that authorization failed

But we have another work book B (B is same as A and only layout is not same), we changed B and save it without getting any error message.

Could you kindly let me know the possible root cause?

Thansk and best regards

    Hi,

    Check for the role which you have saved the workbook A, if you are trying to save the workbook in a role which you doesn't have the authorization, that might give you a error for authorization.

    Hope this helps....

    Thanks,

      Hi Ravikanth

      Thanks so much for your reply.

      Workbook A & workbook B are under the same Role

      If workbook A cannot be saved, why workbook B can be done..

      Could you kindly let me know your comment

      Thanks and best regards

      Hi Joe ,

      thanks for your information

      I do not think it can work

      The reasion is due to that when you press save as, sap will generate a new workbook for us

      For the original one, it will be kept in same position

      thanks and best regards
