Cannot re-save Lotus Documents .ODT file that was renamed from Lotus Word Pro .LWP

Technote (FAQ)


You open a Lotus® Word Pro .LWP file in the Lotus® Documents productivity tool in Lotus Notes® 8 client, and save it with the .ODT extension, You then make some changes to the file and attempt to save it; however, the following dialog box appears:

    A document with the same name already exists and is currently open. Select OK to save the document using a different file name."


This issue has been reported to Quality Engineering as SPR# DLYN7439K6; currently there are no plans to address this issue.

As indicated in the message, the workaround is to save the file using a different file name.
