I have to give users Read, Write, Create, Modify, File Scan and ERASE rights to create a file. There are some folders that we want users to be able to create documents in but not be able to delete them. I think what is going on is as the document is being created it is creating a temp file that has to be deleted and it cannot do it with out the erase right. It happens in all word processors that I have tested, Word, Word Perfect, notepad. Does anybody know if that is what is happening and is there a solution? Thanks
