> I wonder if somebody could help me with a problem I've been

> The problem we have been having is this:
> The NT machine cannot access the network drives (mapped through a
> login script) through Word. Word says something like the
> following: "No permission to access the folder so-and-so. Contact
> your network administrator". This happens when i use "File |
> Open" or "File | Save" from Word.
> If I, on the other hand, open the same network drive through "My
> computer" or "Windows Explorer", and double click on the Word
> file, everything works just fine. I am able to save the file in
> Word, even "Save As" and even Open another file. AS LONG AS I
> DON'T TRY TO ACCESS THE ROOT FOLDER OF THE NETWORK DRIVE.
> The Win98s don't have any such problems.
> This applies to all shared network drives and the user's home
> directory, so it shouldn't be a matter of UNIX permissions.
> Has anyone run up against anything similar?
