I have four Macs Connected to a Windows 2000 network. They all have Office 2004 for Mac.
I am having problems opening excel files as read only when they are already in use.
It is fine if the file is already open by someone on an Windows machine - Both Mac and Windows can open the file as a read only
If the file is already open by someone on a Mac machine then neither Mac or Windows users can open it. They recieve the following error messages.
Mac - The file may be read-only, or you may be trying to access a read-only location. Or the server the document is stored on may not be respoding.
Windows - .xls is currently in use. Try again later
