    Server: WSS 3.0

    Clients: Win 7 Pro, IE9 & Office 2010

    We are trying to edit excel documents containing macros thatare stored within a SharePoint document library.

    We have 1 user who is required to update these documents. She clicks on the link on the document library,once the document is opened even though she has edit rights she is not promptedto edit the document and unable to save it.

    She only gets the option to “save as” which then doesn’t saveover the existing document.

    Are there any known issues with using Macro enableddocuments in Sharepoint 3.0 which prevent the clients running office 2010 toupdate these documents?

    Is our requirement feasible on current software?

    Is there different process required to update these types ofmacro enabled documents?

    Hi, welcome to the forum,

    I have no knowledge about SharePoint but I know that many features are not supported
    I shuuste the link and Google for this or similar issues.
    Saving to sharepoint is a rights issue and as far as I know that a file is downloaded to a temp folder when opened.
    I have macro's reading files on Sharepoint but I do not update them.

    It lets us interact with file in the correct manner when accessing it directly from the library of files but as soon as it viewed from the intranet "live link" interaction becomes read only.

    The only time we lose the functionality is when it is viewed/downloaded via the intranet.
