Re: who is the user that is working on this file now?

Look for the dwglog command. It is in both 14 and A2K. This creates a .dwh
file with the same name as the drawing. This .dwh file is a text file that
contains the name of the user, the machine name and what time and date the
file was opened, closed and attached.
The way we use it is, if you have a file that is locked, you can open the
dwh file and see who it is. Recommend you add the dwglog.arx to the acad.rx
file for this to work. This needs to be done on all workstations.
The express tools have a whohas.arx that will tell you who has the file
open. Don't know if this will work on Novell. We are on NT4. Hope this
helps.

This works for NT -- I'm not sure about Novell. Logon as Administrator ...
Run Winfile (the old Windows File Manager); select file; Open By ... should
list everyone that is accessing the file.

Get a utility called whohasit from novell cool
solutions.  It's free and will tell you who has any file.

Is there a way for "non-Administrator" using WinNT 4 to check who is working
on a file??
