“File or Directory Does Not Exist” with Word 5.00 on Novell
PSS ID Number: Q46215 Article last modified on 11-02-1994
The message, “File or Directory does not Exist,” immediately followed by, “Access to This File Required…,” will be displayed if Word Version 5.00 is loaded on a Novell network when the Novell READ right is not included in your effective rights for the directory in which you try to start Word.
Note: When attempting to load Word 4.00n in a directory in which you do not have the READ right, you will receive the message “Access Denied.”
You should have all rights, with the exception of the parental right, in your user start-up directory, and other destination directories.
The following rights may be granted or revoked on a Novell network by assigning or deleting “Trustee Rights” that control an individual user’s ability to work in a directory and its files. With Novell Version 2.10 or later, the SYSCON menu utility is used by the system administrator to make these assignments.
R Read from open files W Write to open files O Open existing files C Create (and simultaneously open) new files Create subdirectories of the directory D Delete existing files of subdirectories Delete subdirectories of the directory P Parental, which includes: Create, rename, erase subdirectories of the directory Set trustee and directory rights in the directory Set trustee and directory rights S Search the directory M Modify file attributes
In addition, rights may be added to, or deleted from a directory’s “Maximum Rights Mask” to control the rights of all users, except those of the supervisor, in a given directory. These are the same eight rights that apply to trustee security. With Novell Version 2.10 or later, the FILER menu utility is used to make these assignments.
“Effective rights” are the actual rights of a user, and are determined by the combination of trustee and directory security rights listed above.
The following example shows how trustee rights and directory rights are combined to determine effective rights. The bottom line represents the rights you, as a user, actually have in a particular directory; given the assignments in the first two lines.
|Directory Rights: R : W : O : : D : P : S : M :|
|Trustee Rights : R : : O : C : : : S : :|
Effective Rights: R : : O : : : : S : :
