Closing open network files

Specs: Advanced Server 2000, 2gb
I know files can be closed from 'open files' in computer management but when I close files through computer management it takes a long time to relist the files - like 30 seconds. It wouldn't be so bad if I only had a few files to close but sometimes I have 50 files to close.

Like in 'Open files' I need to be able to see the files listed by username. I have tried programs like ofview and other similar programs but I can't find one that will include the user that has the file open.

Anyone have any ideas?

This is tested and confirmed on my own machine. Can't guarantee it will work on 2000, but considering they are both NT-based systems you can give it a shot. Here is Microsoft's info on the matter.

I dont want to close all files at once, just a specific users files. If anyone knows a program to do this please let me know.
