We have a list in sp 2010 and members of a group with the following permissions:

  • Limited Access (greyed out)
  • ViewAddEdit

are not able to edit documents that they uploaded.

Here is a link to the screen shot of permissions

Any help in resolving this will be much appreciated

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

you can also set permissions on the list itself... check the list permissions. – c0deNinja Nov 9 '11 at 18:07
The list has permissions to allow the users of that group to edit lists. Inspite of that they are not able to update documents attached to a list. – user1002127 Nov 9 '11 at 18:26
what abilities does ViewAddEdit role have? have you checked the role definition? – xgencoder Nov 9 '11 at 22:01

ViewAddEdit is not a standard permission level. Please, check the definiton of that permission level and you will see which privilege is missing.

These are the group permissions towards the site. Try going in the List Settings > List Permissions in the Ribbon and adding the group there, the default "content" permissions in sharepoint are:

Full Control

You may need to stop inherting permissions on the list, more information here
