A document opens in read mode in office 2010 but in edit mode in office 2007 when using sharepoint 2007
Posted on 2011-10-03
Our company has just started implementing Office 2010 but still uses SharePoint 2007. We are noticing 2 issues starting to occur.
1)Word documents open in read mode when selecting the document link in sharepoint (not using dropdown menu). The behavior in Office 2007 was documents would open in edit mode. Is there a way to get word docs to open in edit mode using office 2010 and SharePoint 2007, other than using the dropdown menu?
2) Excel files, when selecting the document link (not the dropdown menu), are requiring a refresh before changes can be saved. Any merges of data are lost during the refresh. What's causing the refresh error/warning in excel? Also using office 2010 and SharePoint 2007.
Process changes are hard to make so it would be nice to avoid a work around that involves a process change.
An explaination of why this is occuring would be equally satisfactory.
