i have a file I have given userA modify permissions on.  UserA is on a different child domain than I am on, both under the same parent.  Every few hours the permissions are removed.  I'm thinking maybe a group policy is removing the permissions I am setting, but haven't been able to figue it out.  any ideas?

both clients are XP SP3
DCs are 2003

The file you mention: is it a database file?
Seems like a service is stripping off the permissions.
Seen this before with ms SQL server.

actually its an excel file.  Something odd happened today with the file.  The permissions no longer fall out, but every time the user accesses the file, the ownership of the file changes to userA.

I unshared the dir, removed user permissions, then recreated everything and it now seems to be ok
