We are having an issue with an excel file on a network drive, where a user opens an excel workbook 'stats.xls', closes out of it, tries to reopen the file and gets
It is locked out for all other users trying to access it also.
We have tried deleting Temp folders in both Windows folder and local users folder.
Also there are no temp files (~$stats.xls) remaining in the files folder.
We have found that the file appears to unlock itself automatically after a certain period of time(maybe 1-2Hrs).
Is there a solution to this problem other than having to wait for it to unlock?
