I have it setup in the office that a the public folders are not able to be modified so as to prevent people from deleting files by mistake. With office 2003 i have had no problems opening files and saving them. NOw with office 2007 i cant open a file already created and save it (modify). I understand why the issue is occurring but why DON'ti have any issue with Office 2003 . I still have a vast amount of users working with office 03 without and issue.
