Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

Ask these persons if they did a cvs update on their sandbox before
starting the commit. Typically CVS is rather terse in its messages
when procedure has not been followed. I have seen this also when I
have a binary file that needs to be committed but the local revision
is not HEAD on the server (someone else has committed his own changes
before me). In this case the response is this very non-informative
I think that if the same happens with a normal text file then CVS will
tell you that you need to update first.

But update of the sandbox in this case will replace your edited xls
file with the one from the server and you will have to get your
version back by renaming the file that cvs moves it into (something
starting with a #). And of course this destroys whatever changes the
other person has done...
A side effect of the fact that binary files cannot be concurrently
edited and version controlled.
