Summary:
Microsoft Purview is enhancing the user experience for opening locked records in Office applications by making them read-only. This prevents editing errors and aligns with the behavior of Office online versions. The update requires no action and will roll out from late June to late August.

Details:
In Microsoft Purview, we are improving how users can open locked records in Microsoft Office client applications (Microsoft: Word, Excel, and PowerPoint). Previously, when an end user opened a file that was a locked record, they could edit it and press the Save button, but SharePoint and OneDrive would reject the save and display an error. To avoid this confusion, locked records will now open as read-only and prevent end users from making changes. A message will explain to the end user why they cannot make changes to the file.
