Edit bar in Office 2007 not showing up when opening documents through a shortcut. Documents are read only.
For more than one user in my network, they are unable to edit office documents when opened through a shortcut. The document opens in read only mode, cannot find a way in office to edit the document such as through the publish or server menu items. I did a search and this did not resolve the problem: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/870853 Our sharepoint server is 2003, coupled with SBS 2003 SQL database 2000 Users are using Office 2007, sp2 Operating System: XP, sp3 IE 8 Users are setup to receive all MS updates, so they have latest updates. The edit bar shows up when opening the document in sharepoint as read only. Clicking it allows the user to edit the document. They have contribute privileges to the library and file in sharepoint. The file(s) are being opened with a shortcut (right click -> New -> Shortcut, paste in the hyperlink to the document in sharepoint). Strangely enough, I have the same setup as the other users but using office 2010 and the edit document bar shows up when opening the document in the same manner. On a side note, some users have infopath 2010 installed, others do not. Any help would be appreciated, or posts to other topics with solutions that I missed. Thanks!
