Office 2008 Files: Read Only, POSIX, ACLs Frustration!
We have a fully patched Leopard server with SMB sharepoints.
I'll create a new folder using my Leopard client, we'll call it PermTest.
I wish to lock down this folder, so I set POSIX permissions to Owner:
Decker12, Read/Write, Group: Sales, Read/Write, Everyone: None.
I'll drop some Word and Excel files in that folder, and propagate the
permissions. I'll use TinkerTool System and "ls -le" to verify that the
permissions are set correctly on the folder and all the documents contained
inside of it.
I verify that from the client, Decker12 and members of the Sale...stream read error
I have a small excel file (200k) which worked fine until i changed the
file name (I cannot remember the original name as it was just letters
and numbers which was the reason for changing the name!). Now it will
not open and upon trying several Excel recovery programs some of them
told me it was a stream read error' and the recovery failed. Any advice
or is this file a write off?

I use outlook express 6 to read news. Before installing WINXPSP2 it
worked great but after that installation it no longer does.
When I enter a news group by clicking on its name I get the list of
posts as usual, but as soon as the list is loaded the group is closed
and I'm back to the list of my subscribed groups.
Is there anyone who knows a fix to this problem?

Excel 2003 SP3 on XP Pro SP3
I have a workbook I have created to use as an index to occasionally used
workbooks using hyperlinks to create a point and click Document Index.
It works well for why I created it; now I'd like the ability to encode
some of the links to open read-only instead of read-write. I didn't find
anything in the help files ... is this possible?
Thanks in advance!
...Open read only but update when changes are made / refresh #2
If anyone can point in the right direction to answering this question,
I would be very thankful.
I was wondering if it's possible to lock an excel file and have other
people open a read-only copy but have them recieve notifications when
the locked file is updated. Is this possible?
If you need any clarification, please ask.
...Files not opening after Windows Software Service 3.0 installed
Hello, I'm having problems with some files not opening after a windows

We have a network share with hundreds of Excel spreadsheets that individuals
access and update regularly. The files are protected worksheets with only
certain cells that the individuals can write to. They should then save the

All users are set up to have special rights so that they can access and
modify the files.
However, some (possibly all) Excel 2000 users open the files and they appear
as 'Read only' so the users cannot save their changes.
