File already exists (Error 58)

See Also    Specifics

This error has the following causes and solutions:

  • This error occurs at run time when the new file name, for example, one specified in a Name statement, is identical to a file name that already exists.

    Specify a new file name in the Name statement or delete the old file before specifying it in a Name statement.

  • You used the Save As command to save a currently loaded project, but the project name already exists.

    Use a different project name if you don't want to replace the other project.
