The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 5523
Permission changes to read - only when working with excel files
Last modified: 2016-08-27 14:48:26 UTC
We have the following problem: when a user belonging to a group with +rwx permission modifies an excel file created by someone in the same group (so the file is rwx mode), Samba opens the excel file only in read mode, thus is no longer possible to save changes unless we do chmod ...
I know this is a known problem, cos we already had it with previous versions (3.0.26) and office 2003. We upgraded to the current 3.0.28a version and we didn´t receive any feedback from the end users (that does not mean a thing ;) but since we upgraded to office 2007 we are having the same issue again.
Could it be any incompatibility between them?
Any help or feedback would be great.
