I have set up a small office network with two machines,
OFFICE and LAPTOP.

both running XP home

after clicking on Robin's Documents on OFFICE I can
see "my Documents in OFFICE" on the LAPTOP and all the
files seem to be there ok

when I try to open a file I get a couple of error
messages before it will open, whick is rather tedious.
Any suggestions to resolve this will be gratefully
received.

example File "filename.xls" in Robin's Documents on
OFFICE (this seems to be called Robin's Documents when
looking in C drive or My Documents on desktop)

Click on file - error message " \\Office\My.xls could not
be found. Check spelling and verify file name is
correct ......)

click OK

error message - "Documents\filename.xls could not be
found check spelling ect......

click OK

file opens normally

if modified and save it saves back to OFFICE with no
problems.

I've seen that problem solved by turning off the anti-virus "scan everything every time it's accessed" (whatever that's called in whatever AV you may have running) feature on the machine where the file you're trying to open resides.

Don't see an option like that in Norton AV but next time I have the laptop hooked up I will try turning off the AV and the Firewall and see if that helps
