SharePoint Version 2.0 Microsoft Office Documents opening in Read Only Mode
Posted on 2011-04-20
Hello All Experts,
So my issue is that I have a Widows XP Client that is running Office 2007 Standard. He is configured for one of My Sharepoint Sites and has Read-Write Access to the 2007 Spreadsheets that are contained on the site.
From this client, when he opens any of the documents (they are all Excel 2007 files) from the SharePoint site no matter if he checks them out, or opens the file from Explorer view or list view, the files open in read only mode.
So I setup his profile on another XP client, and the files open in edit mode no problem.
So I am sure this is not a permission issue. I then uninstalled Office 2007 and rebooted and reinstalled Office 2007. Still the same issue. I have seen what are supposed fixes, like a registry fix, etc... and so far I have tried and failed.
