Excel files locked after Excel crash

After Excel crashed a file that is used by several people, stored on
the shared volume of the department, it will only  open in read-only. 
Trying to change or delete it gets Sharing Violation error.  We can
save to another name/location but now can not get rid of old file.  In
the past the only way to clear this was when the server was rebooted. 
How do we clear the sharing violation with out rebooting the server? 
We have NSS ona NW 6 server with latest updates.

Using NRM you can selectively unlock the file. Goto https://<server ip
address>:8009, Volumes, drill down through the volume to the file,
click on the info icon to the left of the file name, scroll to the
bottom of the screen, there is an option to disconnect individual
users from the file.

upload data from an excel file directly into db without saving the excel file
Hi, I want to give users the ability to upload an excel file and then take the data out of the first column in that excel file and insert that into my db.  NB The users will be told to only put data into the first column.
