Does anyone know how Excel locks a file? For example, if I have a document open in Excel, and then I open it in another instance I cannot make changes because the first instance of Excel has "locked" it.
The reason I ask is that I have a problem with Excel crashing. Because it does not unlock the file, in order to reopen and edit my file I have to reboot my machine. If I could just delete the lock file then I think I could just start back up at my last save?
