Recently i'm having permission issues with excel files on the server share. Everyone can edit and save. All the excel files have correct permissions allowing authenicated users the ability to save and edit. But this person cannot open any excel files unless i add permissions for the user on the file level with full control. Why is this happening now? Any suggestions will be helpful.

Thanks EE

Because excel creates a temp file when its opened you must have the modify permission on the folder so that the temp file can be created (and deleted).

Give the user Full Control in the Share permissions if possible and re-test.
