Errors over networks

I'm building a web application which explains my need for ODBC.
My company uses a program that outputs its information in dBase IV format.
They have to run reports on it and publish the end results in HTML.  My job
is to completely automate that task, however I'm very unfamiliar with dBase.
My company doesn't even have a copy of it.

My ODBC problem occurs when I try and access dBase IV files on a network
drive.  Here's the error:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'
[Microsoft][ODBC dBase Driver] The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open
the file 'T:\WAPP\FPW\DATA\callhead.DBF'. It is already opened exclusively
by another user, or you need permission to view its data.

/net/tacopencalls.asp, line 191

I have permission to read it, and it's not open by another user.  If I copy
it locally though and run my local ODBC connection to it, the contents are
outputted in my generated HTML table.

I have no clue what's going on,
