File Locks Open

By rtblanton ·
I am running NT 4.0 w/SP 6.0a. My users are attached locally on Ethernet 100, & they're running Excel & Word 97 Small Business Ed. with SP2. Their files are saved on the NT server. Several times a week file their files will stay locked open on the server, even though they have saved, closed the app. & rebooted. I have to goto the server manager and close the resource to unlock their files. The parent directory has share level access & their individual dir.'s have NTFS permissions. What is thereto do to fix their files from being locked open?

We will be overhauling our network in about 30 days. All the servers will be re-installed under different configurations. I will try the Opportunistic File Locking at that time, Thanks for the help, Ron
