Shared file lock problem


Can't get enough of FH

Here's another for the windows networking people out there.

We have some folders shared on our network and mapped as drives for the users, but encounter an odd problem periodically. Certain files (mainly Excel files) seem to get locked , and won't even let the person who originally had them open back in. I can unlock them in 99% of cases from the server, but I'd rather prevent it from the start. I understand it's a process or something similar that applies the locks when they get opened, but I need a way of making sure they're all removed when someone closes the app.

Anyone fixed this problem before?

(oh yeah, it's a windows 2000 Small business server)
