On a share,  Permissions... if I add them, but it still won't let me on the share.
We have a single server standard setup with about 10 users.
The simple read write does not seem to affect it.
I am using the administrator account to add the share.
Thank you

You must have both share and NTFS permissions. If you have share permissions, but NTFS permissions, access will still fail.

Permissions are MOST RESTRICTIVE - what is not allowing will override whatever you think may be allowing.

Post screen shots of the NTFS permissions (Security tab) and the Share Permissions from the Sharing tab.

Also one user which I have as read only on the share on the server, it will NOT allow the user to change the file on the server but it saves a copy on the users temp folder workstation; and it will open with no problem.
Thanks

Also where is the different places that Share and NTFS permissions are accessed.
On the server on the folder it self only or under
administrative tools > computer management > shared folders > shares > 
       |Folder properties | Share Permission.. tab  | Security.. tab
