I am using win me and when I save a document,letters etc. They seem to save as read only.When I afterwards edit them and try to save I am told I can't save with the title and must rename the file.After renaming, the letter is saved under the new title and so of course is the original letter which I then have to delete. Can anyone tell me how to stop the files being saved as read only? Don.
I don't know if this will help but I sometimes have a similar problem in LOTUS and I find that I have accidentally opened the file TWICE. Consequently, it won't let me save it or edit it as it is already in use. Just check that your file isn't already open.
The other thing if you are using XP, try going into My computer and C:\ (assuming this is your HDD) and swipe across all the folders, go to properties and un select the read-only button, this may work.
You could try D/L either "croa" or "atchoo" click here If you install one of these, select the folders you wish to change in Windows Explorer and right click the program (Clear Read Only Atributes or Atchoo)will be in the menu. Click on this to change the file attributes. Both work though Atchoo may be better for your needs
