I am trying to save my active workbook as a CSV file that is read-only.

I have the following function, but it does not make the file read-only with the password 1234. Why is that?

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "C:\Test\" + Filenamer, xlCSV, , 1234, True

EXCEL Help says:
expression.SaveAs(Filename, FileFormat, Password, WriteResPassword, ReadOnlyRecommended, CreateBackup, AddToMru, TextCodePage, TextVisualLayout)

Is the read-only function not applicable to CSV file formats?!? :confused:
 

Excel Facts

Repeat Last Command
Pressing F4 adds dollar signs when editing a formula. When not editing, F4 repeats last command.

Should the syntax not be this:

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "C:\Test\" & Filenamer, xlCSV, 1234,,True
