I need to be able to detect when an Excel file is opened within a network folder.  Ideally I need something like the Watcher class which throws up events if any file is changed in a specified folder.  Unfortunately the watcher class generates messages for all evenets other the file open event.  Does anyone have an alternative using Win API calls that can capture this event?

I would like to see the code you used.
I could not get the notifyfilter to work right.
Thanks
