Hello,<BR><BR>I have a ODBC connection to a text file that is pulling information for an ASP page. The problem I have is that IIS seems to lock the file exclusively when it reads it, so I can&#039t make any changes, or even OPEN the file in notepad. (I get a message saying:<BR>"The process cannot access the file, because it is in use by another process" <BR>This happens on my NT 4.0 Workstation, and the NT4 server.<BR>This file is automatically updated every 15 minutes, but since IIS is locking it, the script that grabs the latest file keeps failing. Is there a way to "unlock" the file so I can overwrite it with the new one? Thanks! (PS, You can email me directly at rhallett@conleynet.com )
