Current settings:
SharePermissions:
Domain Users (Read)
Domain Admins (Full)
Programming Group (Change/Read) - This is the one with the needed permissions.
DocControl Group (Full)

SecuritySettings:
Domain Users (Read)
Domain Admins (Full)

You won't be able to modify files with this NTFS permissions. You need Write permission to modify existing documents, Append Data will not help, unfortunately. When you change file special NTFS permission Write Data, Write Attributes and Write Extended attributes should be set to Allow!

NTFS and Share permissions will cancel each other out in a way.  Rather than get into explaining how....my instructor recommended to me to set SHARE permissions to everyone FULL CONTROL....then use just the NTFS permissions to restrict access.  Then there is no thinking of if share=read and NTFS=write what is the final result.   I hope that makes sense.  

If you need more info let me know.

Using Everyone Full Control permission is bad security practice. If possible Everyone should be removed and "Authenticated users" group used instead.

Actually what I did was wrote a vbscript to assign permissions to the files themself and left the directories alone.

Thank you for all your assistance though.
