WSS 2.0, shared excel documents will open on all of the PC's on the LAN but will not
allow edit on 2 of these PC's regardless of user logged in.  The file displays normally
but selecting Edit Workbook returns:
"Cannot perform this operation. The file has been moved or deleted"
WSS is on SMB 2003, PC's all running XP SP3, Office 2007 with current updates.  
Suggestions appreciated.

Is you WSS site url listed in the users trusted zone or local intranet zone in their Internet explorer settings?
Check that.
From what I can tell, Sharepoint is working as designed.   With Sharepoint, Excel spreadsheets can be viewed and filtered in a multi-user environment, but not edited.  To edit, you must make a copy of the speadsheet and open and edit it with your local copy of excel and then "re-publish" the revised worksheet to Sharepoint it you need to make it available to others for viewing and filtering.
