Excel 2007 files show as "read only", can't save

Hi Experts!

I'm troubleshooting an issue where a computer with an Excel 2003 is unable to save any changes made to the Excel 2007 files that are on the share drive. However, if I open Excel 2003 files from the same folder on the share drive, I can easily save any changes that I made. It seems that an issue only happens when I try to save changes made to Excel 2007 files...

I have already tried to install and re-install Office 2007 Compatibility Pack, but still having this issue.

Please help!
Thank you in advance.

Thanks for reply. There are about a dozen of Excel 2007 .xlsx files in that folder, and they looks like they aren't open by anyone else.

Try to install the Office 2003 SP3. This might helps.
