    I setup a new computer with Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) to share its files to the rest of the office that runs Windows XP. All confirm seeing and able to edit the files, but when saving, it doesn't overwrite original, it saves an entire new copy.

    Any help with this would be great! We wish to keep the original and just overwrite when editing and saving.

    Thanks again....

    probably, just an idea, a security issue with the shared folder - make sure all users have full control permission in this folder

    it needed to be updated to sharing with Everyone with read/write.....wrong permissions.
