We are using Samba on a Sun Solaris system having
shareable folders between users of Sun and NT

Having recently upgraded a number of users from Office
97 to Office 2000, we are now experiencing a situation
with Excel where two users can now modify the same
file at the same time.

This was not allowed with Excel 97.

We have not made any changes to the Samba
configuration and are trying to establish whether
Samba is the cause or some obscure feature of Excel

Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution.
