    I had created an excel file which was save on the server
    ( Server O/S : Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition).
    I wonder why my server sometimes will automatically create
    a hidden dummy file with 0 byte.
    This hidden dummy file has a file name almost same as the file
    that I am saving at the moment.
    ( For example : The file name that I am going to save is OOOO,
    and the server will createa hidden dummy file with the file
    name FOOO, Moreover, the hidden file will has a worksheet name
    same as the hidden file name).
    Could any one let me know what are the causes ?? Is it dangerous,
    if my server create this hidden dummy file
