SharePoint MOSS 2007 disable Office document authentication

Posted on 2009-12-28

When our users access the SharePoint website, they are prompted for user credentials.

Then, when they want to open for example an Excel or a Word document, they AGAIN need to enter in username and password.

Question: Is it possible that the user log in just once, and then can open as many Office documents as they want without having to reauthenticate when open an Office document?
