I support one Apple PC for our marketing department

When the user opens a document from the network share she gets the error I attached below

She can open Word documents saved to her PC

This is the first time this has happened and  the PC is 2 years old so it worked in the past

Unmount the share and remount it and most of the time it will solve that issue.  OSX does wonky things on the SMB network shares  Which OS version is it?

Click on the eject symbol next to the share name in your Finder.

Then either Command+K or in the Finder Menu, Select Go --> Connect to Server.  Choose the server.    You may need to do this first to see if you have the server name already saved here.
