SetOSXPermissions also works for a folder, but in this case the read/write permissions for all are octal 777 (&O777).

Check the error code returned by SetOSXPermissions. > set the folder permissions to readOK-writeOK-deleteOK. There is no deleteOK. There are three permissions fields (owner/group/others), each being 1 octal digit. Each digit has 3 bits (read, write, execute/directory) Robert P.
