Error

The following message is generated during Preview:

A file with the same name already exists in this location: odpub://final/SPD/preview.txt

Note that "SPD" may be replaced with other Document identifiers.

Root Cause

You are attempting to preview a document format for a Topic that has other Topics referenced in the See Also Property. UPK will try to generate all of the See Also documents at well, but uses a single temp file called preview.txt during the build. It creates this for the first document, attempts to create it for the second document but sees that it already exists - and doesn't want to overwrite it - so errors out.

Resolution

Either remove the See Also documents while you Preview, or do an actual Publish.

An SR was opened with Oracle for this issue. As yet unresolved.
