Default Access word document from external app while it is open

Hi

I open a text file with ms word 2003 (i.e. a common txt file) and I need to
edited from ms word which is ok, but I need also in parallel access it by an
external application and I cannot (I get a message permission denied). I
imagine that ms word lock the file. So what I can do to override this
setting? in order to edit the file from another application while the file is
opened in word?

Thank you

There is nothing you can do. Word will lock the file. Word is not a
multi-user application.
