Hello Novell tech support colleagues,
Some of my heavy Microsoft excel users are experiencing the following error:
File in Use
Open Read-Only or click Notify to open read-only and receive notification when the document is no longer in use. The file eventually opens after 2 or 3 tries.
I upgraded the Client 2 to the most recent version available which is Novell Client 2 SP4 for Windows IR1. This client fixed the Read-Only problem but introduced a more severe issue on large Excel Spreadsheets ( 5 mb or more file size) ; the file tries to open but it never does.
I removed the Novell Client 2 SP4 for Windows IR1 and installed the Novell Client 2 SP4 or the Novell 2 SP3 (IR10b) and the Read-Only issue came back again.

Any help to solve this issue will be great appreciated.
