Access Denied Contact Your Administrator

Last Modified: 2016-04-13
We have users with Office 2016 installed on 7 computers.  There is an issue with saving files on a network share Windows Server 2012.  If they open an Excel or Word file and make changes and save it, they get the error access denied contact your administrator.  They can create new documents and save it but once they add additional changes they get the message and the file may even disappear from the share after trying to save it.

Any suggestions I need to get this fixed asap so whatever suggestions are appreciated.  We have had Microsoft on the line and they checked the communications between workstation and server and it appears to be fine, but they do see an error message that they have referred to the Office team.  In the meantime any suggestions are appreciated.
