I have seen some macros that can tell you if a shared FILE is in use by another user, but is there a way for the macro to tell me if a ANY file on a shared folder is in use. I don't really need to know the name of the file, just that SOME file on that folder is in use.

Here is the code for a shared FILE (as given by Microsoft). I just need it for a FOLDER.



Code:
 Sub TestFileOpened()

       ' Test to see if the file is open.
       If IsFileOpen("c:\Book2.xls") Then
           ' Display a message stating the file in use.
           MsgBox "File already in use!"
           '
           ' Add code here to handle case where file is open by another
           ' user.
           '
       Else
           ' Display a message stating the file is not in use.
           MsgBox "File not in use!"
           ' Open the file in Microsoft Excel.
           Workbooks.Open "c:\Book2.xls"
           '
           ' Add code here to handle case where file is NOT open by
           ' another user.
           '
       End If
   End Sub
</pre>

Hi,

How about iterating trough all the files in the shared folder and checking if they are open via the same IsFileOpen Function ?

Regards.
