Folder and file permissions

I want to stop file creation on a folder.  But allow saving a file that is already present in the same folder.

I changed permissions on the 'domain user' for the folder, by stopping inherited permissions from above, then giving it read and list.   Then went to the file, and gave it modify write.  Checked the 'effective perimissions', and it shows domain user having modify/write permissions.  But the folder permissions seem to be the only ones that take effect.

have you gone in to the special permissions to see if you can set the permissions there?

I think you need to look at the append data permission

If Madhatter is refering to the 'advanced', I've done that.

I only see 'create folder/append data'  you think that will stop a new file from being created in the folder?

You have restrict folder level permission to read only then remove inheritance on the files.  Then you can change the existing file permissions to rw.

Sorry,

This issue went away and I didnt' have time to get back with it.  The comments were appropriate, but similar to what I had already tried.

Suggestions were good, but I had tried them.  Didn't have an idea of where to go next.
