With Excel/Word 2007 & saving a modifed document to a mapped network drive (Win Server 2003 STD - fully patched), office reports "filename is currently in use" message.  The same documents when opened in Excel/Word 2003 are capable of being saved without any problems.  Does anyone have an idea??

I have searched the web & not found any discussion on this.

(Searched google for Excel 2007 "filename currently in use" ) - appears may be an issue with BitDefender - turn it off, save the file, then turn it  on

many thanks - I uninstalled BitDefender on the machine & it now saves files without reporting an error - looks like back to Nortons for the moment!!  I have allocated the points to you.
