10.4: Avoid an Office 2004 save problem
Authored by: Oneota on Dec 01, '05 07:11:00AM

The problem is actually more with Tiger Server's AFP implementation than Office 2004, since the problem also occurs for Office v.X users.

This had been driving our users (all 3,000+ of them) mad since we moved to Tiger - they were getting the torches and pitchforks ready 'n everything.

We had even been talking to Microsoft engineers about the problem, when this solution came out of the blue last week. Glad it happened along!

10.4: Avoid an Office 2004 save problem
Authored by: Tanster on Jan 25, '06 05:02:31PM

Since it worked for you, could you clarify something? My clients are encountering the problem when trying to edit a file directly from a shared folder. If the absolute path is /Volumes/ServerHD/SharedData (where the name of my drive is ServerHD) and everything in SharedData and below is being shared through the Sharing pane in WGM, should .TemporaryItems be located in /Volumes/ServerHD/SharedData/.TemporaryItems or should it be located in /Volumes/ServerHD/.TemporaryItems? The wording of the original post is vague because it mentions "roots" and to me, the root partition of my drive is /Volumes/ServerHD while the root of a file structure is /.
