Any one knows why in Windows Server 2003's File Server Management Console, some "Open File"'s "Open Mode" is "Read+Write" but "# Locks" can be 0? If It is Open as "Read+Write", at least 1 x lock exists... Some of my users complaint some of their Excel files on network drive can be open by others directly (without prompt for "Read Only") while He/She opened that file already. And those excel files are not set as "Share Workbook"...

Hi Christine,

It seems pretty obvious from reviewing your past topics that you may not have fully read the terms of use:

We offer free computer help and tech support for home and personal use. We are not here to support others that work for profit, or to support/replace your company's IT department.

This is not a rule we like to enforce, but we will when there are numerous questions, or when someone is consistently requesting help, while not helping others. In your case, it's all of the above.

Good luck resolving your issue. Topic closed.
