    I am part of a three computer workgroup. I've set some of my folders to be shared within the workgroup, and have set some to be viewed, but not changed. However, when I go to the other computers to check the sharing, those folders I've shared, but not given permission to change CAN be changed. I've gone online (MS forums) and checked to see what I'm doing wrong, but can't seem to get the permissions to work correctly. Any advice?

    All three computers are Win XP, using Office Pro 2000.

    Does your PC have XP Home or XP Pro? If XP Pro are you using Simple File Sharing (SFS) or advanced file sharing?

    We are using XP Pro, advanced sharing, or at least I've unchecked the simple file sharing. I can get that far, but it seems like the tutorials on this are either leaving out steps, or my version isn't the same as what they are explaining.

    Thanks for the quick reply!!!

    I haven't used advanced file sharing, so don't have the knowledge to try to advise what might be wrong with the permissions on those folders which should have read only access.
