This depends on access rights given for remote file access. Right click the file on a network computer and select "Share" from the context menu.

If you will share the whole spp folder then users should be able to update files this way.

Access rights granted to users accessing the file via UNC path can vary on the OS used. What OS do you use?

VFP could also map the drive programatically. See http://www.news2news.com/vfp/?function=597
