My scenario is:
Have SharePoint 2007 website through which we access our Word documents and currently use Word 2003 to open them. Users who edit documents use check-in and check-out and publish new versions as and when needed. Users who just use the documents
then access these as read only, but are able to make amendments to add names and addresses etc.
We're currently testing Office 2007 as the integration capabilities with SharePoint 2007 are much better, but we have found that users who access the documents as read only can no longer make ANY edits. The only way they can is to check out the document,
which they are not allowed to do as they are not editors. So basically we have documents created that users cannot use...
In addition, the Word documents we have stored on the SharePoint site have the DLCPolicyLabelValue field in the footer that links to the item properties in the Sharepoint list to provide the barcode value and current version number. Whilst ok in Word
2003, Word 2007 doesn't allow these fields to update.
