    Visual Basic, Entrust and Windows NT Server 4.0 Service Pack 6a


    Hi, I am working with a project that includes Visual Basic 6 sp4, Excel and
    Entrust. My major problem right now is between VB and Entrust (Thier Visual
    Basic Toolkit). Has anybody worked with these two components?

    If so has anyone ran into the problem of Visual Basic locking the files (excel
    file) until the application is closed therefore not allowing the file from
    being saved multiple times. The application embeds excel in a Visual Basic
    MDI Form and allows the users to open an excel template. The user fills in
    the template at everytime they save the file the file gets encrypted with
    entrust. The user is only able to save once because the file is locked until
    the application closes down. Therefore our workaround is to create new versions
    of the excel file everytime they save. This makes a messy directory. Does
    anyone have a solution on how to keep VB from locking the file?

    I am starting to think this is a windows NT Workstation problem.


    Thanks in advance
