centos file permission issue

Hello There

I have an issue in file permission,I have configured an samba share drive,
created user and then shared it with other network computer(WINDOWS 7)

whenever an user creates an folder or file (like Excel) it shows up in read only mode..

I have ran the command :- chmod -R 777 <sharedFolder>

still when the users create a new folder, other cannot edit or modify the file

need help

You don't need to set the directory permission to 777 change it back

Here's my suggestion (I'll call the user you create "jon"):

first of all, change the owner of the shared folder:

chown -R jon:jon <sharedFolder>
..then force it in the samba configuration:

guest ok = yes
guest only = yes
browseable = yes
force user = jon
force group = jon
inherit permissions = yes
Hope this will solve your problem

Sorry for my bad English
