How do I resolve a File in Use message when opening files from the ELC share?

The problem occurs when opening a Microsoft Office file such as an Excel file located on the ELC share

The “File in Use” error: “<filename> is locked for editing by ‘another user’. Open ‘Read-Only’ or click ‘Notify’ to open read-only and receive notification when the document is no longer in use.
