Sharepoint 3.0 Permissions Broken

Posted on 2009-04-13

I have a user with Full Control in WSS 3.0.  When the user attempts to Approve a Vacation Request, they get the Error: Access Denied!  I have verified Permission on the absence site as well as the absence list.  The permissions are the same.  I have even blown the list entire site away and started over and still have the same issue.  How do I fix this?

Ultimately the right your user must be granted is 'Approve Items', check that no one has changed the default Full Control permissions. If they have you can either grant the Full Control Permission Level the Approve Items permission or you can create a new Permission Level named "Approvers" and grant that the correct permissions.

Unfortunately, the orignal permission levels have not been altered. I have even created a permission level called approve with everything checked.  Still no luck. so far I have blown the page away, again, recreated it  and the same thing happens.  I have then blown all permissions for the page away and started over with permissions.   Still no luck.   I'm out of ideas.....

Can you explain in greater detail what are the SharePoint Components (List, Document library, Content Types) used and whether you are using custom code. Are you using Workflows? Are you using Event Handlers?

Try to think of any custom action implemented that would require elevated privileges in your code or workflows.

Could you test again and post your SharePoint Logs at the time of error?

Sorry,  for such a long time in responding.  We've been quite busy with a few other issues.    I ended up, blowing the Vacation Absence site away.  I then recreated the site.  It is still technically under a parent site  (Construction Dept.).  I noticed that my primary user still could not approve requests even with design rights.  I broke the permissions from the parent.  Restarted services.  Re-inherited permissions, and then edited the permissions on the Absence site, technically breaking the permissions agian.  Amazingly, this somehow fixed the issue.  Somehow the permissions became hosed, my best guess is that inherriting, breaking, inheriting must have done something.   It surprised me that this worked.
