    Here is the thing: At my work, we have a shared document with a number of documents that about 15 people have to access. If one person is in the document, a message comes up that it is being used by another user and to press ok if we would like to make a copy. After hitting ok, the copy comes up. This does not result in a copy of the actual document after we close out.
    To my point, recently, a number of PCs were upgraded. They are no longer able to make copies or to Read Only documents.
    Tech support has been called a number of times, but they are not making any progress.
    Does anyone have any ideas????
    I appreciate your help!

    I'm confused. Are you saying that when you are asked by word if you would like a copy of a document that is being used by another, it won't let you? If not, what does it say? Does it give you any error message. Can you be more specific.

    It does open a copy, but Microsoft saves them, usually in the Temp folder, and they have fun names like fht78mkl.doc, unless you Save AS, possibly as "nameofdocument2.doc"

    If the above is not the case, then definitely explain more, but regardless, explain what the systems were upgraded from, and what they are now. What the messages are, etc!
