File in Use error in Excel

I have a network that was originally configured P2P. I converted this network to a domain, and gave each user their own username.

I used ForensIT's profwiz to "transfer" files & settings to the domain profiles.

Now, if a user has an Excel file in use, instead of displaying on the 'File in Use' dialogue either shows the old username, or simply 'another user.' Does anyone know how to get this to update to show the currently logged on user?

Check the options in Excel, for the User Name field. It is probably empty, you can set it to the users account or just a name.

@Gerwin Jansen: Is this stored in the user's profile, or a global setting?

@ProfessorJimJam The documents are .xlsx files.

Not sure, I'm expecting in the profile, most likely here:
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\Common\UserInfo
