We have changed the user name of an account on an SBS 2003 server (from Tim to Emma). We have changed the name in ADUC in all places I could find. All functions are fine including e-mail and security but when that person has a file open and someone else tried to open the file, we get a message - "file in use .....  XXX is locked for edting by Tim (the original account name). I can't find anywhere that still references the original username Tim but it must exist in the deep memory of AD. Any ideas on how to change this.

Supposing that the files in use are Microsoft Office files the user has to change the personal information in Word or Excel.
Your user will find that setting in the settings of the appropriate program.

Thanks Mikainz.  I hate it when the answer is so obvious!  Here I am chasing Active Directory!  I will verify the solution at the client as soon as I get a chance but expect you will get the points.
