MS Office Document Locked by the Author

I have issues with my own documents locking me out. Especially with PPT. I get messages that say the document is read only and I have to save under a different name...

Is another process open or what??

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
