child object security settings

i have a master object with private sharing settings i.e. it has only read only access.

the child object's records should also be read only then. however other users r able to edit the record. why is that so? can anyone explain how to correct this?


Two Question:


1. Are you sure that it is "Master-Detail" and Not a lookup relationship?

2. Does the users that can edit have modify all permissions on the parent (if master-detail)



yes i am sure it is master detail and not lookup

no the users have read,create,edit and delete permissions but not modify all permission.



Did you ever get this resolved?


On the master-detail relationship, make sure that the Sharing Setting is set to Read/Write. This will ensure that Force.com won't allow users to edit the child record unless they can also edit the parent record.
