We have windows 2000 server domain. Our users are connected with domain and they have different permission. Users are using Windows 2000 professional. Each department have different folder in server and shared the relevant dept. users. We need some users should not delete, rename and move the files and folder, but they should have update (if they want to add or delete any content from word or excel file) permission.

I found
Full control,
Read & Execute,
List folder contents,
Read and
Write permission under security. I selected Read & execute, list folder, read and write permission. But the problem is now they couldn’t update any word or excel file but the remaining permission is ok (they could not delete or rename the file.)

How can i give the edit/update permission for the users?

please help

Word and Excel create "temp" files in the folder the file was opened from, and to create that temp file you need the following permissions:

You may try placing the documents on a windows 2003 file share and use the following utility to "hide" documents from those who do not need them.

You may check the "effective permissions" tab to see if there is an inheriatance issue: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=308418#EYACAAA
