SAME SAVING PROBLEMS

We're having problems saving a shared workbook to a network drive (NT).  Whenever someone tries to save the file, Excel returns an error saying it could not resolve the filename.  If we hit "Retry" it errors out again and saves as a temporary file.  Recreating the file does not help. This happens even when the owner of the file is the only one using it, so it appears not to be a file sharing problem.  Any ideas?

Sorry to plagerize!
