I have a network of 3 computers in my office. I have Microsoft Office Excel 2007 on my Vista PC (Computer 1) and Microsoft Office Excel 2003 on the other two XP PCs (Computers 2&3) We all share the 'MY Documents' folder on Computer 2. If I create a spreadsheet in Excel 2007 on Computer 1 and save it to the shared MY Documents folder, then open it on Computer 2, If i try again to open it from Excel 2007 on Computer 1 again then I get the following message: "Access Denied. Please Contact your Administrator". The Same thing happens when I try to open it from Computer 3. Is there a simple fix for this or do I need to upgrade the other Excels?
