Hello,

I started having this issue in SW 2017 SP4.1. I'm still having this issue after recently updating to SW 2017 SP5.0.

 

In any drawing, after I go into Sheet Properties and select a sheet format other than the one loaded with the template, then try to save the file, I get the error: "An unknown error occurred while accessing <file path>."

 

Only option is to click 'OK' and goes back to the drawing un-saved. I've tried saving to different directories, it creates the file but still throws the error. Opening the newly-created file gives me "SOLIDWORKS encountered a serious problem in the file <file path>. Please contact your local SOLIDWORKS support representative for help in troubleshooting this problem."

 

This is a very debilitating issue and any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Tyler

Re: Unable to save drawing after loading different sheet format

Can you upload one of these files with the assembly an part files?

If you are on subscription, open a support ticket with your VAR.

Re: Unable to save drawing after loading different sheet format

Here is the drawing template file I'm using. I'm trying to load the attached sheet format and once I do I am unable to save. It is happening without any part/assembly files in the drawing.

 

I have raised a problem report with my VAR.

 

Thanks,

Tyler

Re: Unable to save drawing after loading different sheet format

I had the same problem you have.

But the problem is with your Drawing Template and not the sheet format!

What I did was start a new drawing using the SolidWorks default template.

Then I replaced the sheet format with yours.

I could then do save-as template.

There is another thread about "crusty old templates" which I think applies to your situation.
