Word Document in Document Library can be edited by a user with Read access RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a SharePoint site off of a parent site - the child site does not inherit permissions from the parent site.  The child site has a document library that contains a Word doc.  I right-clicked the Word doc and selected Manage-Permissions and then provided one of the child site users with 'Read' access.  Despite this, the user is still able to edit and save the Word doc in the document library.

    I'd appreciate any idea as to why the user can edit the Word doc when they were provided with 'Read' access to the Word doc.
