I have a copy of Excel 2003 installed on a server.  It is in a share were the
4 people on out team can access throuh a mapped drive.  When any of us open
the workbook make some changes and attempt to save it we get a messavebox
that says the disk is full.

This in not true.
If we save the workbook to our desttop, make the edits save it and copy it
back to the server they are saved for the next person to see without a
problem.

This adds a good deal of time to the changes over the month and we would
like to know ifanyone can tell us why we cannot edit the file directly on the
server.  It contains a data source to a database that populates the workbook
with some data, if that matters.

Any ideas of why we have this behavior and what we could do so that we can
simply open the file in place make the changes and then save it , would be
greatly appreciated.

Thanks
