Could you help me on setting permissions on a Windows folder?

By Bianko ·
Hi, I'm asking for your help in setting permissions on a folder of my file server (Windows 2003).
I have a folder "A" that is writeable only for the user that created it. So any file and folder inside it are read only for other users. Now, he wants ALL users be able to write to a specific file in that folder. Others file and folder must continue to be read only. In that folder there are other files other than subfolders.

So, here's the question: What are the right permission I have to set to satisfy my user's request?

Thank you very much.

Turn off inheritance on that file only
set the permissions on that file the way you want them.

hehe I was able to do it but I didn't know about Office method when it saves files!
For a txt is pretty simple.. For a Office file you have to allow file creation and deletion in that folder. Better to create a folder as the Best Practise teaches! Thank you!
