Cannot delete an Excel file on server

I have anExcel on my server which I would liek to delete. However, when I try to delete it I get the error messgae "CANNOT DELETE $Filename$: It is being used by another person or program. Close any prorams that might be using the program and try again."

Is there a way of overriding this so that i can delete the file? The server has been restarted.
Many thanks,
