OMW Question


Active Member
We've just started using the OMW in Xe. We're trying to make some
Vocabulary Overrides to P01012, and get the message that "The object is in
use by the OMW (either through check out or through save location), and is,
therefore, unavailable."

We go to the OMW and the object is not part of a project, we
1. Add it to the project, same message when we try the Vocab Override.
2. Check it out, which seems to work, same message when we try the Vocab
3. Erase checkouut, same message using Vocab Override.
4. Remove object from project, try Vocab Override... same message.

Any ideas?

Revise your F9861 - Object Librarian Status Detail table filtering on your object name (SIOBNM) to find the check out entry where the value in SIMKEY is not equal to the name of your server.
If you find it then deleting the record hopefully will resolve your problem.
I don't know that could it works for the "Save Location" too because we also just getting started with XE and we still haven't setup/configured any save location.
Good luck,
