Dear all,

We are using Exchange 2003 (ver 6.5, Build 7638.2: SP2) Public Folder and sharing information.
Users with Outlook 2003 without any issue with the public folder.
However, Outllok 2007 users who even have the permission on the same folders will be result with "read-only" of the file inside.

So any reason for that and solution ?!
Thanks a lot !


Best Regards,
Patrick

Sounds strange. Did you install the latest service pack for Office 2007?

Hi Kirschi,

Checked with SP2 installed.
When the office 2007 users open up the Excel file, it says read-only (compatibility mode).
It cannot be saved.

Finally I got the clue.
It is office 2007 and 2003 compatibility issue.

Thanks for help !
