    I created a file with Excel 2000.
    I sent it for corections to someone using excel 97(98?). Now, I get the anoying message : "xxx should be open as read only xxxx". Why? How can I avoid such message?
    thanks for your help

    Open the file as read-only. Hit File-Save as. Hit the options and remove the read-only.
