I have installed SPS1.

My users are copying files from their common store q:, and "dumping"
them into Sharepoint.

Some people cannot run mail merges on files that are in the
Sharepoint web folder.

Also, they cannot save PDF files from Acrobat straight into the
stores. (They save to desktop, then check it in manually after)

Is this normal, have I got a bug, or is this expected behaviour?

Sharepoint web  folder.

The .pdf format is fully supported by the portal, but when you attempt to load
the file by the save  AS option you are unable to see folders.

SharePoint Portal Server workspace folders are Web folders. Although Web folders
look like local folders on the hard disk, they are designed to manipulate files
on a Web server or SharePoint Portal Server computer; therefore, these files
behave differently. To save a document to a Web folder, the program must be
able to communicate with the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Internet publishing.

You can still load the file to the portal by using the copy and paste option.
Right Click the .pdf file and select the Copy option.

Using your WEB folder  connection to the portal, locate the area you wish to have
the file stored. Once you have the location, Right Click the area and select
Paste option. This Does Not Complete the Process.

Once the file is copied to the folder on the portal, you are still required to
complete the file profile. To complete the profile, Right Click the .pdf file
now located on the portal. Select from the option window Edit Profile.
Complete the profile requirements as normal.

Yes they can save  the file locally then
drop it into the web  folder. They just can't save directly into a
web folder  from inside Acrobat.

To access the web  folders directly your application must be able to use
WebDav. Many tools do not support this.
