Windows 7 Professional - Sharing Files for Full Edit

I setup a new computer with Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) to share its files to the rest of the office that runs Windows XP. All confirm seeing and able to edit the files, but when saving, it doesn't overwrite original, it saves an entire new copy.

Any help with this would be great! We wish to keep the original and just overwrite when editing and saving.

Thanks again....

It appears that the shared files are "Read Only"... That's the only reason I know of that would prevent them from being overwritten...

does it require that he is part of 'homegroup' or should he leave homegroup then share with exact members on the network? i am confused.
