I thought at first it was a Vista problem, but I am having the same issue on Office 2007 with Win XP. Microsoft's response was to save it to your local HDD and copy to the network share. Sounds like a bug to me. + 0 Votes Removed Embassy Trust Suite to fix redbowtie.geo 3 years ago Had this problem on a Dell laptop WinXP with Symantec end point protection. I have had problems with the preinstalled Embassy Trust Suite on other laptop and we don't use this product so I uninstalled it and the problem is gone. There may be an update for Embassy Trust Suite that would fix this also. + 0 Votes Drive format?? TechBro 7 years ago I had this problem with a USB drive and I thought I was just careless! Not sure if this is the right path, but is the network drive formatted as NTFS? If not, maybe that has some interplay with Vista and Office 07. Try updating the FAT32 partitions to NTFS. + 0 Votes Can't do a "Save As" to a network drive using Word 2007 micpc Updated - 7 years ago The problem seems to be with offline files. On the start menu, in the search field, type "offline files". Once offline files opens, click on disable offline files and then you will be prompted to reboot your machine. After reboot, you will be able to save to a network drive. + 0 Votes "Save As" issue on Word 2007 and Windows XP Pro support 7 years ago Is there an acknowledged answer to this as yet? I have the same issue on a network of 2 XP Pro machines both with Word 2007. Machine used as 'file server' does not have offline files enabled (as it has fast user switching option in Windows logon enabled, therefore offline files option is not available) but the problem exists as is repeatable in terms of making the machine crash each and every time you choose "Save As" from the remote PC. + 0 Votes Anyone resolved this ben.rattigan 6 years ago I am having a problem with Windows XP Pro SP2 and Office 2007 to either network shares or mapped drives to Windows 2003 Servers R2 (non R2) x86 x64 Standard. When trying to save from any Office 2007 app using only the Save As option and creating a new file name, Office says it cannot find the file. If you use any other program, OpenOffice, Corel Draw, AutoCAD, Notepad etc.. they all work. Checked offline files, made no difference, checked users permissions, still did not help. I have removed all the latest Office 2007 and Windows XP updates and this made no difference and I have also uninstalled and re-installed Office and it still doesn't work. It was working, up until last week. + 0 Votes Anti-Virus Software sales 6 years ago Same issue, I have SBS R2, Windows Vista Business, and Office 2007 Small Business. Turn off your antivirus software and it should resolve the problem. Then call them and get an update for your antivirus software. + 0 Votes Can't save Office 2007 files to network - ANSWER support 6 years ago If you use CA Anti Virus, it is this that is casuing the problem. It's only started since beggining of July. The only way to get round it until CA fix the bug, is to make the user profile a member of domain administrators - NOT exactely ideal! + 0 Votes Are you using Linux/Sco or other Unix oS on the server? crcanassr 6 years ago I had the same problem saving to an SCO server running Vison FS as smb server. The problem went away when I updated to Samba. As I understand the problem has to do with the way Office 2007 works with the temporary save files which are not compatible with old smb server (including win2000). Carlos + 0 Votes Same setup no probs tintoman 6 years ago I have the same set up as you..Vista Business and office 2007, I save to a network drive which is actually a share file on the server, make sure you have permission to save in that location and remember that share permissions will almost certainly be more restrictive than ntfs permissions + 0 Votes I have found a work around jshook 5 years ago I can save an office 2007 file to a network folder if I click on "My Network Places" instead of using the drop down arrow when I click "save as".
