read only office docs on home network

for some reason when opening up office docs via wifi on home network they are read only unless on the originating pc.

everything is on share on pc and laptop,running out of ideas,. also making sure only one copy open at any one time.

Have you tried to open a doc, file, properties, general and take the tick out of read only.

sorted it had to add a tick to the box "allow network users to alter files" somehow the tick had fallen off.
