My accountant ( Xp Pro in a Server 2003 Domain Controller Environment)
was using Excel. Saves and works off the server. While using her Excel
in a normal fashion she was having issues. This message kept popping
up ' document is being used by another person or program.'
These rogue files are named with numbers example DDbd4000. When
clicked on they open into Excel and look like the original file. I
cannot delete them in safe mode. At the server with admin login. I
cannot rename them. If I open them in notepad and remove the contents
and save, and save as ; and reopen the file the contents repopulate
the fake document. The are holding their own, and fail to respond to
any input instructions from this Admin.
I cannot rename them, delete them, move them, alter the contents and
so forth as admin at the workstation (safe mode) or at the Server
(where she keeps her documents). I do not know what to do with these
anomolies that were created the day she was having issues with Excel.
Thanks for any comments.
