"Read Only" Access Error when checking in documents from outlook

  

Hello,

We are accessing our sharepoint services 3.0 document library through outlook 2007.

We can open the files in word/excel etc, but when we go to check-in the document the application tells us that we only have read access to the document, and cant check the document back in to the server.

It works fine via the browser, the read only problem is only when checking out through outlook.

I have given all users full access and design access to the doc library.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Damien.

ASP.NET Allow Admin Users Access Basic Users Accounts

  

Hello,
We have an ASP.Net web application currently released to the public, that uses Membership and Provider features and have our users assign to a "Basic" role.  What we are working on doing is developing an administrative site, so that administrators (presumably to be assigned an "Admin" role), are able to login to the administrative site, where they will have access to a list of users in the "Basic" role.
From the admin site, we want to allow the administrators to click on any of the "Basic" users and effectively be logged into there account (loading the user's profile information in the process, as is the case when a "Basic" user logs in), while still remaining lo

How to restrict folder access to users and theirs only

  

Hi. I created a web application using "Forms Authentication". 

There is a folder name "uploads", and it creates subfolders as username when they register. Web application stores users' files and images under their folder ("uploads/username")

I tried to find a way to restrict users to download and upload files to their folder only and couldn't find a good one. 

Then I came up with this idea that stores "web.config" file each time user registers and the web.config should look like below. Username will be changed dynamically according to username.

This method actually works but I am little worried if this is a good practice as far as performance wise. Because it'll create web.config files as many as users and there might be other holes that I don't recognize. 

I appreciate any advice or better suggestion for this problem.

"Only their own" allows users to edit, then shows access denied page

  
I am managing a WSS 3.0 portal.  I have created custom lists where a group has contribute permissions.  Under List Settings|Advanced Settings, when I set Edit Access to "Only their own" or "None", my test users can see the Edit Icon and the Edit Item menu option, and bring up the Edit Form.  When they click "OK", they get the Access Denied page.  My experience in that past is that they should not even been shown the option to edit, and they should get Access Denied if they somehow navigate to the EditForm.aspx page.  I even tested this on a brand new site, with three Links lists, each with different Edit Access Levels (All, None, Only their own).  I added one user with contribute permissions.  He had the same result: He could get all the way to EditForm.aspx, but got "Access Denied" when he submitted his changes.  What can I do to fix this?Christopher W.

All Users (Including Site Collection Admins) receiving Access Denied from one Site Collection

  
I usually spend my time in the forums answering questions.  But this time I need the help. I’ve got a client who somehow has succeeded in locking EVERYONE out of one of their Site Collections.  Users can authenticate to the site, but get an accessdenied page when you try to access anything in the site collection, including pages served from the _Layouts virtual directory.  The AccessDenied page shows that they are authenticated, but not authorized.  This is true for Site Collection admins and user’s who have been given Grant Full Control via a Web Application Permission Policy.  Central Admin and one other site collection are behaving normally.  I've already checked for database permissions - the service account can access the database fine. I've also checked for a locked database or overextended quota.  It's not that either. The accessdenied page url references the users list in the root of the site collection as the offending list denying access.   Does anyone have any ideas?Paul Stork SharePoint Server MVP

Authentication for External Users to Access MOSS 2007 Resources

  
Our MOSS 2007 supports users from two domains that authenticate using windows.  Our clients WindowsXP in domain#1 and WindowsVista in domain#2 (which has presented problems authenticating to MOSS 2007.  I would like to give access to external users outside of those two domains.  However, our management does not want to establish trusts between domains.  What would be the best practice to accomplish this?  Additionally, will MOSS 2010 or Forefront resolve these issues?

force document 'save as' for visitor users for all documents.

  
hello we are using foundation as the basis for a customer extranet, one of the 'features' of sharepoint seems to be the inconsistancy of how it handles office and non-office documents. for pdf's the user is prompted for save as. For word docs if the (remote Ad authenticated )user has word this opens the document for the site and reprompts for credentials, i usderstand why this is happening as they are opening the document on different network. the question is can i force 'save as' for word and excel documents in the manner of pdfs for visitor level users. Thanks Mark  

How to use metadata for permission to access Documents?

  
I have document library with 100-200 documents. Not all users are allowed to open all documents. So far I know that user permission can be defined by a document or library level. And permision are granted for user or groups. I wonder if it possible define permissions by metadata level. For example "Personnel department security group" have access to the documents with metadata personnel.    Kenny_I

Allowing internal users access to Sharepoint site externally

  
Good afternoon.   This may be a simple answer (I hope so actually) but I haven't been able to figure this out. What I need: I have internal users who can access my Sharepoint site easily while logged onto my network, and external users who I have added to our Active Directory system who can access the site using our external URL.  Both work fine. What I am having problems with:  One of my users (internal) is on a different AD (he is on our European network) and he can not access the site either from the VPN (when he is in the US) nor from the external site (it will take him to the logon screen, but since he doesn't have an account on our AD, it won't let him in). I understood from our European IS department that all we had to do was give him both internal and external access to the Sharepoint site, and he would be able to connect from anywhere. So, how do I do that (give him both)?  Do I need to have our IS team turn on MOSS2007 to do this (it is not turned on today). Many thanks, I am still a newb at Sharepoint, but trying to learn quickly. Thanks, Jim  

SharePoint sites users have access to

  
Hi All, Is there any way that I can check what SharePoint sites users have access to? Thanks!  

Publish personnal documents to users using mysite or an other way.

  
Hello all, I am required to find a way to create a self service site for each employee in my company where each one would have his section where we can publish to them, personnalized documents like their own benefitits and salary, bonus etc. I first tought that mysites was the perfect feature I wanted but it seems it's not possible to batch publish custom personnalised documents in private sections of my sites. Also, it seems that a user must connect at least one time to create his site. What would be the best way to achieve my goals? We are presently in Sharepoint 2007 but we plan to migrate in the next few month so I will also publish this question in the sp2010 forum. Thank you.
