Excel does not use the file on disk but makes a .tmp file whic
overwrites the old file and is deleted when the main file is closed
Generally this is used in c:\TEMP folder but this can be changed
especially if Excel becomes confused by network settings

I've never seen xl make temp files except in the windows Temp folder.

There was recent post that blamed a specific antivirus program:
The problem was with the antivirus Panda ClientShield. When I uninstall the
antivirus I don't have any problem with Excel.

If you're not using that AV, maybe you could disable your version and see if
that fixes the problem.
