I now need to be able to access the data file on another PC (Windows XP) via a network which I cannot seem to get to when using the drop down list to find the file - all I can see under 'My Computer' are: C: - fake windows drive, E: - CD drive and Z: - Linux drive.

If I get you right, you have to mount the windows share in ubuntu with somthing like this (probably as root):
#mount -t smbfs "//" /mnt/local

After that you could run winefile or your app (as user):
$wine winefile
And you should be able to access the folder with Z:\mnt\local .
