Is it possible that the "Always create backup copy" option is selected?

Click on Tools, Options, and then the Save tab to find out.

Possibly this was done :

On the Tools menu, click Protect Document to load the Protect Document task pane. In the Editing Restrictions section, Check the Allow Only This Type of Editing in the Document box, and select No Changes (Read Only) from the drop-down list.

If checked, uncheck and try it.

View Post

Try going to Tools, then click on Options, then click on Save tab and check at bottom if box "Read-only recommended" is checked .

Also, is he able to make changes to the specific document before he tries to save it? If he can't make changes either,his Word program might not be activated, the document might be locked for editing or password-protected, or you might be trying to modify a document or text in a form that is protected. The document is basically locked.
