Sharepoint 2010 - 'Contribute - No Delete' Access

I'm experiencing an issue with Sharepoint 2010 when I select a Document Library and stop inheritance of permissions from parent folders.
If I try to add a user to that Document Library and select the 'Contribute - No Delete' permission to it, the user cannot see the Document Library location at all.
However, when I change that user's permission to the full 'Contribute' permission, the Document Library appears in the Documents List.
For general reference, we're using Sharepoint 2010 and the company browses using IE8.

Does anyone have a suggestion as to why 'Contribute - No Delete' and 'Contribute' would affect the view of a Document Library? I would imagine both permissions have at least read access.

Thanks.

Hello,

how exactly have you set up the "contribute - no delete" permission level? Have a look at this article about setting up permissions to contribute, but not delete. There is a special mention of the crucial permission to check "View application pages"

Have a go with that suggestion and report back.

cheers, teylyn

Thank you Teylyn. I had a look at both 'Contribute' and 'Contribute - No Delete' permission levels side-by-side and the only difference was the exact permission you stated, namely 'View Application Pages'.

Gave that a tick and tested it to work perfectly. Thanks for your help.
