File Locking RRS feed

  • Question

  • We share several spreadsheets that reside on Win Server 2003 sp2,  the problem is becoming more and more frequent that a user will be accessing the file R+W and when another user attempts to access it they get a message that another user has it locked,  I usually go into the computer management and look at the shared files and find out which user is accessing the file,  however today I had an instance where a user had the file locked, it showed the correct user to all the other excel users but when I went to the computer managament/shared files the file was not being shown as being in use at all????
