AD moved 2008 to 2012

I just finished setting up an active directory server 2012 to replace our 2008 server. I used the FSMO roles to make the new server the primary server. I'm having an issue with Microsoft Excel documents (we use Office 2010) opening in read only for most users. No one else has the document open, and there is no way that I can see to make it editable. The user has security rights to make changes and could make changes on the 2008 server. Any ideas?
Thank you.

This may help: I do not have MS Office installed on the server. Users are using links or shortcuts to open files on their own computers.

did you move the file shares to a new server?  Check your SHARE level permissions - by default, Windows creates SHARES as Read Only.  The NTFS permissions may be Read/Write, but if the share permissions are read only, then the most restrictive applies.
