I have a shared folder on my server at work. I use a PC laptop with Office 2007. My co-worker uses a Mac desktop with Office 2008.

If I create a document and put it in the folder then it is smoothly shared to everyone.

BUT, once my co-worker goes to the doc, adjusts anything, and saves it, the doc becomes Read-only for everyone else who tries to do anything with it. It only happens with his computer. No one else's creates this problem.

Our IT people have tried messing with the securities a lot, but to no avail. I think the problem is something specific on his computer.

Any ideas?

Exactly, the problem is on his computer. Tell you IT people that the problem is not with te network security, so they have to be very careful they won't mess up network connections. They should check the security of the application that is causing this problem. Let's say the guy wants to open a Word (.txt) document. After he makes changes to the document it becomes read only. The security measures should be checked on the Word software on his computer. Try also the review all the features that are displayed after you click the office logo at the left upper side of the screen.
