Please help.

In Microsoft Excel 2000, we seem to be getting the above
error message frequently.  No other users are in the file,
and there aren't any temporary files relating to the file
in question. Any ideas on what is causing this?

We are running a mixture of Windows 2000 & XP machines on
to a Small Business Server 2000.

Hope to hear from someone soon

Regards
Simon
