File Rights

Not sure where to ask this so I'll try here.

Need to have file rights set at a directory to SAVE the document but
not be
able to modify it once it's saved. I know I found this on a TID and
can't
find it now.

I'm heading home for the day. Will check in in the morning.
Thanks....

Liz

Re: File Rights

You can make a directory and all its current contents RO in the
NetWare/Dos
file system, but that will not affect files subsequently created or
copied
there. Is this with Macs? Or what version of NFA are you dealing with?

Re: File Rights

All you should need is Create. If you want users to be able see it in

the directory listing, add File Scan. If you want them to be able to

view the contents, add Read.

Thanks. I'll give that a try. Security is getting tighter.

Re: File Rights

No problem. If you need additional help on this, you should probably

head to the Novell Client forums.

Re: File Rights

Didn't work. I set up a Test User with access to a Test Folder. I'm
using
Office 2000 on an XP workstation. I created a file as Test User and
try to
save it. I get the error message "Cannot save.....Folder is marked
read
only." But it saves it. Then I try to open it and read it and get
....Word
can't import the specified format. Feature is not currently
installed."
It's one sentence "This is a test document." So then Word creates a
second
document with the same name and nothing in it.

I set the directory for Test user as Create File Scan and Read.

Re: File Rights

Do you realise that MS Office apps use a ~tmp file while you are
working,
then renames it to your desired filename when you save? Therefore you
need
to allow users to rename files unfortunately. See if you get the same
issue
with notepad.

BTW is this anything to do with the native-file-access product?

Re: File Rights

Ok, that's a "feature" of Word, as Andrew suggested. And in that case

you need Modify to do the renaming, and you'll need Erase to be able
to
delete the ~tmp files. So, the minimum rights need to be CEM.

Nope. She mentioned she might be in the wrong forum initially. I
might have redirected her, but thought it could be answered readily
while we were here.
