My company recently bought Win 2k machines.  Our corporate office, in their all knowing expertise, sent us an image containing office 2k.  Because of database issues(Access 97), it has been decided by the most upper (and again, all knowing), levels of management "NOT" to upgrade to office 2k.  So, we uninstall office 2k from the machines and install office 97.  Then we install a bunch of service packs and fixes.  Everything seems to be going fine...but then, out of the blue, we've got a bunch of users who cannot save changes to their pre-existing excel files on a network drive.  The error we get is "Document Not Saved".  I've researched all of Microsofts KB articles that I can find as well as Novells KB articles and all of the recommendations/reasons/updates/fixes/etc... they make are done.  Has anyone else had this problem?

This question is posted both here and in the Microsoft Office topic area.
