After the 2018 update I am getting the error message when trying to print and email saying the file you specified cannot be opened. Make sure it is not currently being used by another program or a read only file. The windows error is that 'the file exists'. It does eventually print after clicking ok around 6 times to this dialogue box. Maybe it was something I had to disable in the process like the Data Base Server Manager? Can't see in services where I have gone wrong. Please help? Reckon Accounts Premier Addition
