Make open files unshareable on a Microsoft Small Business Server 2003

I have a client that when working on an excel file that is located on their Small Business Server 2003, The file can be accessed and changed even when the origional user is working on it.  I thought that a file open would keep any user from opening the file from the server.  What can be done so that this cannot happen.

If an excel file is being worked on the default is for other users to be offered a "read only" copy.

Unless that is you have enabled the Tools->"Share Workbook" option - if this is ensbled, then oprn the file in excel and switch this off to revert back to the defau;t behaviour.
