fact
Domain Migration Administrator 7.x

symptom
Migrated users are denied access when trying to save a Microsoft Office file to their remote home directory.

cause
When Microsoft Excel works on a file, the application writes a temporary file to the root of the directory containing the file.  Then, when it closes the file, it has to delete the temporary file.  The logged in account needs rights to delete a file on the root. Since users can save a text file to their home directory, and since they can manipulate files in their home directory with Windows Explorer, this is indicating that security has been translated correctly for the user on the server which hosts the home directory. 

fix

Translate Security Settings on the local machine to grant the user Modify access to it's local temp directory.
