Hi All

I have a strange situation happening to a workbook I have created. The workbook is on a network drive and I am able to open this workbook on different machines, however whenever I open the workbook on my machine it opens as read only. I would expect this to happen if it was opened by someone else and I opened it to but its not. I have checked to make sure there isn't another excel session opened. I am using Office 2003.

Can anyone help?

Thank you in advanced.

Kind regards

Peter

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

well my excel worksheet would do that sometimes but normally it occurs if i send it to myself via email and open without saving first. So what i would suggests is send yourseld the file as an attachment, Save it and then try opening it

See what happens
