There is an Excel file on the server, 4 people are accessing it and editing it.
At times if the file is already in use, there is weird message that it has been locked by 'user123' and user123 has left the company and does not work anymore. At other times there is other weird message which looks like computer name 'Acer Bel' that pops up. Can someone explain the permissions of a shared Excel file?
Assume there are users on the server. How is ownership determined? Anybody who opens the file becomes its owner? How can I change the author of the file (creator) and what power does the author have?
Edit: User are created on Windows-Server-2003, they are then mapped to their computers on a LAN. These users are assigned to a group on the Server. The group is given access to this folder and that folder is shared on the network + Added tags to questions.
