  Thank you Florian Pflug but I am afraid  I didn't explain the problem
correctly. What I want is disallow user delete even files they own.

  We have an Acces database file  in a public directory in the Samba Server.
The users open this database through an interface program, obviusly the changes
made need to be saved so we need write permission but not delete permission.

  At the same time we use the samba server to store some files that the
interface program creates, this files can't be removed by his owner.

Greetings, Guillermo
