By making XYZ a member of group "ABC" (if indeed there is a group ABC), the user XYZ will have the access rights soecified for the "group" on any files owned by group ABC.
So to have user XYZ be able to write in a file owned by ABC (user and group) the file must be group writable as well.
If you always (almost) want files created by ABC to be writable and reabable by user XYZ, the "umask" for ABC should be set to 002 (in ABC's .profile for instance)

Read man pages for "chown", "chmod", "getfacl" and "setfacl" for more information and understanding about unix permissions (set/getfacl are uniq to Solaris 8 above I think)
