Have you set permissions on both the security and sharing tabs?

by LocoLobo In reply to CANT ACCESS SHARED FOLDER ...

That got me the first couple of times. I had set Sharing to Full Control or Change. But under the Security tab the default was Everyone - Read. Once I set both, the users were able to use their documents.

BTW: Off topic, many find all caps annoying. It is difficult to read compared to normal writing. Some think you are yelling at them and take offense. Either way, it is worth practicing proper writing. (I am not the best example) You will get better responses from more people. Just an opinion.

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer".
