View Full Version : Word permissions error when saving

06-30-2017, 12:11 PM
If I try to save any Word document to a folder on a server (at work), I get the following error:

"Word cannot save this document due to a naming or permissions error on the destination volume"

The file then turns into a .tmp file. If I do a SAVE AS and replace the file, then it works fine. I have confirmed I have full read/write access to the folders as this only happens with Word and no other program. My tech support has confirmed my permissions and even uninstalled/reinstalled Office for Mac. Still no luck.

I am on a Macbook Pro running OS X El Capitan 10.11.6

Welcome to our forums.

Can you provide us with a sample of a document file name? Also, what kind of server are you trying to save the document to?

One thing you want to make sure of is that you are using a legal file name such as "my document.docx", and that the document name remains intact when trying to save it to the folder on your server.
