OK one more since I am on this forum

Problem: I open attached documents and make some modifications. When I go to save the document with the changes ACT! will not allow me to overwrite the existing document with the new modified one. I have to save elsewhere. Delete the original and then attach the new one. Any way of getting around this.

What type of attachments?  Are you using Office 2007?

What error message are you getting?  Are the files local or network location?

Files are network with full permission given on all the folders.

Error message is \\server\actdatabsefiles\attachments\ anydoc.doc is currently in use. Try again later.

 

With my other computer on office 2003 the problem doesn't occur.
