Hey guys. I finally switched to T-Mobile from Sprint and got a Lumia 810. So far I love it, but I'm having a small problem with the OneNote app. It is finding a duplicate of one of my notebooks as you can see here:
If I click on the closed one to try to open it, it just opens the "Work" notebook that is already open. I know I can hide the closed notebooks, and this isn't a huge issue, but it really bugs me. does anybody know how to fix it? I've checked my SkyDrive multiple times and I can't find any duplicates there.

Are you certain it is the exact same notebook? Like have you opened the closed version, made a random edit, then see if its reflected in the real one? I ended up with a duplicate personal notebook when I first established sky drive with one note (like 18 months ago). I recalled having trouble getting rid of it and now just keep it closed.
That one was automatically established in the \documents folder in my SkyDrive as a OneNote internet shortcut. Easy to miss because it's not in its own folder. My real notebook links are located in \OneNote on my skydrive.
Might not be your answer but something to check.

Hey that was a great idea. I hadn't done it. However, yes they are the same. When I open the "closed" version, it shows me the exact same info as the other. And when I hit "back" on my phone, the "open" version animates as if I was just in it instead of the closed one. Not sure if that makes sense, but they are definitely the same one.

That is odd... If it really bothers you to have the ghost version then maybe save the notebook (assuming you have OneNote desktop) to your local PC, then delete it on SkyDrive and unlink from phone. Then when only version is on your hard drive, sync it to back to SkyDrive, then your phone.

It was a Shared notebook, but I removed it from SkyDrive, closed it on my PC and OneNote, and reset Office in the settings. However, it still shows two Work notebooks. It's not a huge deal but it's really annoying lol. Thanks for the suggestions

I'm sorry it's not fixed. Not really hurting anything but it would definitely annoy me too! My wife and I now use shared notebooks extensively once we both got windows phones and I'm still impressed at how well the sync works. I can even make links work across notebooks!
