Unable to open files on network (windows) shares

Hi Everyone
I have been using Ubuntu for several months (5.10 now up to 6.06) and
have come across a problem that I can't resolve. I have several work
related, Windows generated, files that I have saved on windows network
shares. When I try to open or move or copy them I get a failure message
to the affect that the operation can't be performed as the file I am
trying to access is not a directory.
Does anyone have any ideas.
If I go to my windows machine (which I just hate doing) and copy the
files to a flash drive, I have no problem accessing them with my Ubuntu
