work PC file sharing

Hi All, I posted this question in the Networking Forum yesterday morning, but not had an answer...Yesterday my work PC totally crashed and had to be fully recovered. I'm in the process of re doing all the data bases etc, but i`m having a slight problem with file sharing.

I've set up the homegroup but my boss can only open and read files in excel. All permissions are set to read and write, but when he tries to save them to my folder it say he hasn't permission to save files in my folder.

Any idea what i'm doing wrong as i have set this up exactly as i had it set up before the crash.

I'm running win7 SP2

thanks John

Hi recap, yes i've tried that...It still won't let my boss save files to the original folder on my PC.

Thanks John

When I follow the walkthrough from Microsoft, everything is saying that the files are shared, yet still when the boss tries to save any of the worksheets, it says he hasn't permission to save them into the original file, yet all the required files when clicked on in explorer are showing as read and write.
