    At my work we have a server that has harddrives that are out on the server that we access. For some reason whenever i save in Mac office 2007 word, excel...etc. document on the mac side it makes it read only when i save it. Then when i put it on the server it is read only for everyone even if they have a mac using office 2007. Is there a way to change the permissions on this? All the permissions in office are unchecked for read only. Is there a MAc OSX permission I need to change?

    The server might be setting permissions. If it is a Linux server using SAMBA for example it might have a permission mask it applies on files. Right click the file and view the file info, at the bottom of the window that comes up are the permissions, what do they say for everyone?

    The server is set to make everything shared but for some reason when i save it to my desktop then put it on the server it remains read only its only when you do it with the 2 mac machines in my office
