I have an issue where more than one person can open the same ppt file in edit mode at the same time. I know this is not supposed to happen, first person gets edit mode, all others should get read-only notice. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly beneficial.

I think that your thoughts...would apply only if the file being accessed...only exists in one location. Perhaps not, since the original document remains saved until replaced by an edited version. I've not been in a situation where I shared documents in one location, so I can't be sure.

IME, users typically make copies when editing a file/document used/accessed by others...edit the copy...and then save the document.
