  • user permission problem

    Hello All:

    I have a user on a 2003 domain that can access network shares on the file server and when she opens the excel files they come up as read only. I have even given her full control over the folder and it makes no difference. other users of this share have no problems opening and modifing the same files

    I hope someone has some suggestions as i am pulling out what little hair I have left

    Hi,

    Please forgive me, if I am wrong...

    If this problem with Single file in that folder..
    Observations:

    Just un-share that file and share it again.

    If this problem with all files in that folder..

    1. In Shared permissions on the Network, please give check mark for 1. Full option for that specific security group.
    2. In Security tab give check mark on "Modify" option.

    Please let me know, what is the status.

      Check the share permissions (default is "Everyone Read") as well as the NTFS permissions
      I suggest you give "Everyone Change" and "Administrators Full Control"

      Re-read that others have write permission - check the single user does not have a deny somewhere

      Chigurusetty, you cannot (in Windows) share a single file!

        I am sorry, here, I am talking about the File sharing which is available in the Microsoft office Excel in Review menu..

          OK - that was most unclear in the original post, which refers to folder permissions
          Which version of Excel?

          A thought -- if it is a network drive, which zone is it in?

            Moved to the office forum as it is related to Excel.
