Document is read-only in SharePoint, but user sees "check out" option in Office 2007 / Word / Excel

I am finding that when there is a document library in SharePoint with checkin/checkout required, if a user with read-only ("Visitor") permissions opens a document from that library, the document will open as read-only in Word, Excel, etc., but the user will see the "Server Document" bar with the message "To modify this document, you must check it out" and the "check out" button.  When the user tries to check the document out, they are asked to authenticate, and then receive the error "Cannot perform this operation.  The file has been deleted or someone else has it checked out."    How is it possible to prevent a user with read-only rights in SharePoint from seeing the "Check out" option in Word or Excel?

Client need to open auditing reports in excel application not in browser


Good day,
I encountered with this issue in MOSS 2007. Auditing reports was opened from common SharePoint auditing page.
This page contains hyperlinks to auditing reports.
When any user tries to open this hyperlink, "open file" dialog does not appear, instead of this a IE browser silently open in text XML format.
I suppose that common behaviour is when user open a hyperlink, report will open with excel application through "open file" dialog.
For example, hyperlink in SharePoint contains URL:

Word Web App cannot open this document due to an unknown error. If the problem persists, try opening

Open local word document


Ok, now my last question for this day:

I want to open a Microsoft Word dot-file when the user klicks on a button in my intranet application. The dot-file is located on the harddrive of the user and executes some code in the AutoOpen() Sub.

Any possibilities to solve that issue? Using Javascript or a hyperlink?

Can't open Word & Excel files in MOSS2007



Starting 2 days ago, my users can't open Excel and Word documents that contain spaces in their name (and of course 90% of the documents contains spaces :-( ). Everything else is OK (PDFs, etc).

What is interesting if you rename the files and eliminate the spaces or replaced them with any character (My Files.doc renamed to My_File.doc for example) then everything is fine, we can open and then save them. However I can't ask the users to do that for all documests (zillions :-).

We are using MOSS2007 on a single server Win 2003 R2 Std x64 with a separate SQL 2005 cluster.

I spent 4h otp with Microsoft premier support but no luck.

Anybody experienced the same issue? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you


Open word document from asp.net - toolbar not visible.



We have a scenario where the data on the web page needs to be opened in MS Word document.

For this we are using

HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentType = "application/msword"

But when we select "Open" in the popup box and the msword opens up, tool bars for msword is not displayed (Font/ font size etc.). But if we choose to save and open the saved document at that time the standard tool bar is visible.

Is there any way to display word doc with standard tool bars.
