SharePoint 2007 documents not opening in Office 2007

March 24th, 2010 No comments

Our company Intranet was deployed on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 and has been in operation for a few months. I recently had a user that reported that they were experiencing difficulties opening documents from their Team Site. A quick check revealed this problem actually affected all documents for the user and not just those in their Team Site. When the user clicked on any SharePoint document to open it they were presented with the dialog box with options to open the document in 'Read Only' or 'Edit' mode. Opening any document in 'Read Only' mode opened the document in the relevant Microsoft Office application but obviously did not allow them to save it directly back into SharePoint. Opening any document in 'Edit' mode failed to launch the Microsoft Office application associated with that document. This was the case for all Microsoft Office document types.
