    Hi Everyone!!
    new to this site was wondering if any could help me out. :) :) A user in my network has a problem opening an excel database when she tries to access it over a shared drive. The data base opens but sits on the egg timer. She can acces all other files no problem and this particular one is not any bigger. I copied the file to her desktop and she could open it no prob's. The file is not locked on the server. the file can be opened from all other pc's around her.We are using a win 2000 network.PLease help!!!

    Have you tried to remap the drive? Does the user have issues accessing any other resources from the shared drive? Is there a software firewall on the computer in question?

    The drive is mapped through her loggon script. I might try statically mapping the drive and see what happens.
    she has no other problems accesing resources at all, thats why it has me stumped. No software fire wall , its a weird one!!!
    thanks for getting back to me.
