Active Directoty Permissions

I have a folder on a public share (Windows Server 2008) where a security group of users have access to list folder contents only.  Within that folder is a file that isn’t inheriting permissions but has the same security group with full control of that file.  However while they can open the file they cannot save changes.  Any idea why this could be the case?  There isn’t any security built into the file and only AD permissions control access.

I think you need to allow this group 'write' permissions on the folder where this file is.

If you can't do this, then create a subfolder and assign correct permissions
