Subject: Error 4005: Notes error: File cannot be created
Feedback Type: Problem
Product Area: Security
Technical Area: Error Message
Platform: Windows
Release: 8.5.3
Reproducible: Always

I have an Domino web application that supports both online and offline (using DOLS). An agent is designed to extract an EXCEL file temporarily to the folder where the database resides, then further read the values in the EXCEL. It works great when on-line.

But when off-line, always encounter this error - "Error 4005: Notes error: File cannot be created (C:\Program Files\Lotus iNotes\DATA\sub_0\zz\devdev\Client Table 1.xls) at line 20 in module detach of ag_LookupClientTables" (the db file path and name is zz\devdev\mydatabase.nsf), when execute the line 20, i.e., "Call nEO.ExtractFile( fileName )".

Here is code of the detatch function module:
' /* ************************************************** */
Dim detachTo As String, fileName As String
Dim nEO As NotesEmbeddedObject
detach = ""
detachTo = detachWhere

If (thisDoc.HasEmbedded) Then
' something is embedded (somewhere)
' locate the attachment by name
Set nEO = thisDoc.GetAttachment(attachmentName)
If Not(nEO Is Nothing) Then
fileName = detachTo & nEO.Source
tell ("detaching " + attachmentName + " to file system as: " + Format$(fileName))
Call nEO.ExtractFile( fileName )
detach = fileName
tell ("attachment " + attachmentName + " not found, cannot load")
End If

End If
' /* ************************************************** */

The error appears when running the off-line on both XP and Windows 7 PCs. It appears that Windows doesn't allow the creation of the EXCEL file onto the PC

Any ideas to resolve this error? Thanks for any suggestions and comments.
