Add files but not modify current files in a folder

LCali asked
Last Modified: 2014-08-21
I have a folder with subfolders.  The Subfolders  have files.  I do not want users to create folders at any level.  In the subfolders the users need to be able to read all files but not modify them.  However they need to be able to create files in the subfolders.  I have tried numerous combinations of special permissions with no luck.  I would like to be able to set these permission at the top folder level to carry down through all the subfolders/files.
