File Permission Problems in Word

By brian.webb ·
This is kind of strange because it does not happen on all machines.
1. Create a document and save it to mapped drive on a Novell server.
2. Open the file and change it.
3. Try to save the file.
4. Get error stating file could not be saved because of a problem with permissions.
5. File then gets deleted!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I know nothing about Novel. However I do know that in order to save a Word Document you need delete permission on the file level. The reason is because when you open a word document Word creates a new temporary file with that in order to save the file it has to delete the temporary file.
