Snow Leopard Issue Saving Excel2008 and Word2007 Files On Windows Shar

Snow Leopard Issue Saving Excel2008 and Word2007 Files On Windows Shar

(OP)
Hi All,

I have a weird situation with Snow Leopard (10.6)and Microsoft Office related to saving files on a Windows2003 Server Network Share.  Here is a description:

* I save a file to the Snow Leopard desktop.
* I drag the file to the windows share (Example: //servername/users/username
* I can open the file from that location.
(Here is the problem)
* When I attempt to modify the file by adding information I can, but when I click save I get the following error:
Microsoft Excel cannot access the file "filename".  
     * the file name or path name does not exist
     * The file you are trying to open is being used by another program
     * the name of the workbook you're trying to save is the same of another document that is -read-only. Try saving with a different name.


If I do the same functions on another MAC that does not have snow leopard (10.5) I have no issues saving the document and then added data to the document.  But if I open this same file from the snow leopard I get the same message as above.

Any thoughts?

Thx

Problem solved...Needed to update Office2008 to the latest version (2.2.13)...This seemed to do the trick.
