  • Hi,

    You need the check the Item Level permission in your list.

    Go to List settings--->Advanced Settings-->In "Item-level Permissions" section, make sure

    ** Edit access:    Specify which items users can edit == All Items

    Let us know if it works

  • Hi whq,

    Please check these two options:

    1 As Hemendra said, go to list > Settings > Advanced Settings, check Edit access option. Select All items if you want users who have edit item permission could be able to edit item in this list.

    2 Go to top site > Site Actions > Site Settings > Modify All Site Settings > Advanced permissions > Settings > Permission levels > Click Contribute. Check Edit Items option had been selected or not.

    Please let us know how it is going. Thanks.


    Best regards. Emir

  • It seems permission issue.

    Either its due to unique permission on list

    Please check that specific item which User B , there must be some item level permission exist on list item.

    Or

    If you inherit permission from parent please check permission of User B on parent site.

  • Once the List is created by the User A, did he/she give contribute permission for User B? Check with some default list in the site by providing the contribute permission to User B and apply the same permission for the new list created by the User A.
