Bogus File and Directory Read Only Attribute
Posted on 2011-02-24
We're running SBS2003 SP2 with XP Workstations and are having issues with MS Word and Excel saying a file stored in a shared directory on the server is Read Only when it's not. If we open the file in question by double clicking on it in Explorer, it opens no problem. If we open the same file through Excel, the file will open but it reads as Read Only. The work around is to save it to my desktop and then re-save it to the network shared directory. There are also times when I go to save a non-read only file in Excel to the shared drive, ann an error message appears the the drive is Read Only, which it's not. I know this all sounds wierd but it's true. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
