I just did a file server migration frmo an old Windows 2003 server to a new 2008 server.  I migrated all our users home directories over with no issues...Or so I thought.  Users can access their directories, can create files and folders within their directories, but cannot edit any MS Office files after they've been created.  If I try and edit one, even as an Administrator, I get an "Access Denied" error.  I can create and edit text files all day long in the same location.  Help!!!
