Does anyone know what is the extension for excel (2003) temporaryfiles?

I am setting up a File Server(windows 2003 R2) with only excel
permission for one folder.
In this case, I give permission for excel permissions like *.xls,
*.xlt,etc. Also temporary files permission like *.tmp, *.temp, ~*.

However after setup, it only can create excel file, change the name.
If you change the content want to save it or save as another name,
system says cannot save the file.

OK. If I give all the permission to *.*, then no problem at all.
So I am thinking what kind of extension for excel temporary files.

I found the KB knowledge from :
http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;814068&x=16&y=10

But I do not see any special files when I edit the excel file.

Some one can give me other hints?

Thanks a lot!

xl2003 and below don't use these kinds of temporary files. They can put
additional files in the windows Temp folder, though.

When xl2003 and older saves the file, it saves it as a temporary file with a
funny name (8 characters--no extension) in the same folder.

If the save is successful, xl will delete the original (or rename it to its
backup name (like "backup of book1.xlk)) and if that's successful, xl will
rename the funny named file to the original's name.

Thanks for that information!
I just wonder if they can use extension like MS word. That will be
good for me to control the files.
