newbie sudo-vi question

We are suffering through a botched install of sudo at my site.
Thankfully, I am the one suffering through it and not the one who
implemented it.  :-)

I have a newbie question...  I'm able to sudo vi a file using
the full path name (/usr/openv/netbackup/vault/production/filename)
but get a read only error if I'm IN the directory and simply try
and vi the filename.  The admin who is configuring this said he
tried giving me explicit rights to vi in that directory and visudo

Anyone have any ideas?
