Word will not save a Read Only document

  Trikie 00:09 31 Dec 2004

I have been getting help in another long running thread. I am copying each entry into a Word document and have got up to 3 pages with no problems in printing, saving and then later adding more and again printing and saving.

This last time of copying and pasting the latest entries when I try to save I get a message that it is a Read Only document. What has happened and how can I get it to save again?

You probably opened two copies of the same document by mistake. Second copy will open as read-only.

Thanks Pesala. I had made quite a few additions and didn't want to lose them so I e-mailed it to myself , filed the reply under a new name and can now alter and save it.However, it's nice to know how it happened in the first place
