User can't modify file - Filemaker 7

A group of us regularly share a lot of Filemaker databases.  All of the sudden, on this one database, one person is able to open it up, but not modify it. She can for all our other databases.  I have check the access restrictions, and made sure that even Guest had full access, but she still can't create a new record or modify a field.  She is the only one who has it opened too, so it is not shared.

One thing though, is that her computer was recently upgraded to XP, would there be a problem there? I am not sure what to look for.

These are also databases we have been sharing for years, and really no changes the way we do things.. other than she was the only one on Windows 2000, and now upgraded her.

Check the Windows file permissions.  It's most likely that it was set to be read-only for her access privileges.

I guess files are on a server, in a shared volume.
is the new PC member of the domain, or is yr organization a workgroup only?
what are the permissions of the shared folder regarding this user account?
That's one the fm weaknesses, when the problem is at the OS level, it just does nothing, no msg is issued...

It was interesting that the folder had the right permissions, but the one file didn't . I wouldn't have guessed that the permissions would turn off the editing capabilities, but still let you view it.
