Layout: I am hosting a file server on Linux (Samba), from there users are opening files (edit, create/delete, view) over the LAN.
Scenario: a user is opening an excel file and edits it. When he's asked to save the file and confirms, nothing gets save and a *.tmp file appears instead of the original file.
So far i have notice that:
-it's not user or file related not even location is the same.
-it does not matter if the file is in xls, xlsx or xlsm format.
The common thing:
-all users are using the MS Excel 2007 with SP2.

Any advice? It seems that i'm lost in this issue.
