Hello there. This is a Windows 2000 server in a networked
environment. One directory on the server keeps having
this problem:

The directory has about 10 word documents that several
people have access to. Every day there are ~wrd.tmp files
showing up in the directory constantly. Also, there are
temporary word docs (.doc) showing up in that same
directory as hidden. The temporary word docs can only be
hidden when Windows is configured to hide hidden files
and folders.

I can configure each user's pc to hide those hidden
temporary word docs but the same cannot be said for those
~wrd.tmp files. Both of these seem like temporary files
but I though temporary files are supposed to disappear
after a short time. These do not. Any advice is
appreciated.

Presuming this isn't a permissions problem on that share/folder, I'd try
posting in a Word/Office group - I've seen this problem before but don't
remember the solution, and one of the Word or Office gurus is more likely to
have a clear answer.
