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

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

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
