Windows Server 2003 file permissions
I'm trying to create a shared folder on a Win 2k3 box that students can map and save files to, but not read the files after saving them or read other people's files. I tried giving them List Contents and Write permissions only, but that doesn't work. A faculty member wants to give the final using our computer lab. He wants each student to start with an Excel file and when they're done filling it in, to save it to the shared drive. But he doesn't want them to be able to access or change it later or for the students to view other students' files.
I'm not sure it can be done. Anyone else have any ideas?You can't fix stupidity.

Perhaps a little late for the is idea, but one idea would be a scheduled vbs script (every five minutes?) that checks for files in a specified folded and when found it moves them into a secure folder.
I don't use 2003 so I can not help with permission specifics unless they are the same as in 2000 (and I don't know what is different).

filipino - why did you feel it was necessary to bump a thread thats 2 months old?
Postcount maybe? hmmm
I do agree with DVNT1 (of course!), a script would work great, could even use a batch file if you just want to copy everything out into a seperate folder.
Have it set to a small time frame scheduled task say 2 minutes or something.Helicopters don't fly; they vibrate so much and make so much noise that the earth rejects them.

Excel FinalOriginally Posted by M_Six
Permission level may have to be set in the Excel spreadsheet. If there are not too many students, have the faculty member create the original spreadsheet using the options in the save as menu to restrict opening the file. He/she can use a short password to open the spreadsheet. Once this is done, the permissions should transfer to copies of the file. Open the files prior to the final on each computer. When the students save and close the files, they will not be able to reopen it unless they have the password.
