    Thanks, Paul. In frustration, I did reboot and it freed up the
    file. I did determine that the directory itself seemed to have
    the lock, not the file itself. I could not open any of my data
    files in that directory. Error 70 has to do with write protected
    disk.

    permission denied to open a file

    I had to use cntrl alt delete to end out of a loop with
    a random file open. Now when I run my program again, I get
    a "permission denied" message when I try to open the file.
    Is there an easy way to fix this problem?
    I tried opening the file with access read write, but did not
    help any.
