Office 2003 SP3 Documents Changing to Read Only on Vista Ultimate PC

Posted: 09-26-2008, 12:47 AM

Office 2003 documents become "Read-Only" while working on them.

Once this happens, I have to go to File > Save and the "Save As" dialog
box will come up instead of the "Save" dialog box and then I have to
save the file with a new name. (Office 2003 & Vista Ultimate)

The files are being saved to a Windows Home Server.

Any ideas why this happens and how I can stop this from occuring?

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

Daniel

Well, you don't really give us anything much to go on. It is probably,
though not certainly, a problem of permissions on the files. Since they were
created on Office 2003, they were likely done on another machine with
another account owner. Are you accessing them from a network? Do you have
read write permission on the folders they are stored in? Have you taken
ownership of these folders and files? Are you using an administrator
account? Can you access them in "safe mode"? Are you accessing them from
the same account from which they were created and stored?

Help us to help you. Tell us what is happening there.

Good luck.
