Hello, not sure if anybody can help.

Basically I have created this really good spreadsheet that me and my colleagues use on a shared network. Once we use it it is then uploaded to our work operating platform whereby we can all view it and edit it.

However if it is uploaded by someone and then I go into it to edit it it wont just save with the edited details. Its says "To keep your changes, you'll need to save the workbook with a new name or in a different location." So then I have to save another one and get the original one deleted.

Now i have gone into the spreadsheet in question and save as - options - general and the the read only is unticked. Why is it saying its read only when its not?

Also I have gone to the folder that the spreadsheets are saved in, right clicked and it says this below. As you can see it says read only is ticked here but by unticking it its still the same.

Thanks
