The autosave function in Office Products 2007 is not working through Group Policy.  We have 2008 Ent. Servers and Office 2007 Enterprise.  When a user logs in they see the correct path but excel or word never attempt to save the document.  We are using the following format in the GP \\servername\sharename\%username%\Documents

If I am missing anything let me know. Thank you in advance.

Have you verified on the client machines that they are receiving and processing the GPO?  Have you run gpresult or other tool on the client?

Yes they are receiving the correct path from Group Policy.  Everything that was set from the GPO is visible on the client so we know they are receiving the Policy.  FYI These are on Citrix terminals.

If you have a GPO on the citrix OU there is a good chance the loopback processing mode is set to replace. That would overide user settings going to the Citrix servers.

Also, I know there are certian features that are disable once Office gets installed on a Citrix server.
