ISPF Version 4 introduced the VIEW function that provided edit-like capabilities without the ability to SAVE the member. As you view a file, other users can also access the file, and modify it. The viewed version may not reflect the updated file. In SPIFFY you now have two options: Shared VIEW and exclusive VIEW.

Shared View is ISPF’s basic View function. It allows several users to work with the same file at the same time. Shared View does not ENQ on the file being viewed. Though this View disables the SAVE command, a user can still save via the REPLACE command by using the same name of the member being viewed as a parameter to the REPLACE command. The viewed member may not reflect the real member since other users may edit and change it while it is being viewed.

Shared VIEW does not pull down members edited from the ISPF concatenation list (PROJECT, GROUP, TYPE) in the same way EDIT does. If a member exists in the second library in the concatenated member list (indicated by 2 under the LIB column), it will be viewed under LIB 2 while in EDIT it will be ENQed and saved under the first library in the concatenation (LIB 1).

Exclusive VIEW will not allow other users to either EDIT or use exclusive VIEW on the viewed file (shared VIEW and BROWSE are still permitted). Exclusive VIEW also has a controlled save capability. When you use controlled save, a prompt panel is displayed, prompting you to override the default mode of discarding changes. Exclusive VIEW provides functionality similar to shared VIEW, but with enhanced integrity.

Your installation may configure SPIFFY to support both VIEW modes, or enforce one of the two VIEW modes.
From SPIFFY 5.8 User's Guide and Reference.
It does not make things better, but at least we know now why some users can save and some cannot.

Please please try "HIDE X" instead. Much funnier!
