For the last several days, I have had this message in Word/Excel/PowerPoint when I have been editing files that are synced to my machine using OneDrive for Business. 

 

It also appears when I open a file direct from Word Online, SharePoint Online or Teams.

 

I have tried stopping the OneDrive sync, removing the files and then re-syncing, but I still get the same message.

 

My files that are stored in OneDrive for Business and not in SharePoint Online are fine and can be edited and synced as expected.

 

I am using Windows 10 Pro Build 1803

 

Any suggestions would be very welcome

I'd love to solve this problem.  I too experience this error when editing a SharePoint file that is also stored through the One Drive utility
