Is it possible to find out, who has locked the excel file? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello friends,

    I have an excel file on a file share which is shared among multiple users. Is it possible to find out the userid of the person who has opened the file in Read-Write mode, there by locking the excel file?

    I know that, when I try to open the file, excel will show me "This file is locked by user xxxxx". Is it possible to get this information programatically, preferably c#?

    Any help would be appreciated.
