I have a data base of named ,dates , and other info stored on a system . I would like to copy the info onto another system but when i do , it says it is a "read only file" and when i open it and put the names in alphabetical order , after re-boot they are back to the way they were before . Clear as mud ?

What program are you using?

If it's Excel and a "read only" file, you'll have to "save as" with another file name.

O.K. for an update , it is a data base on one system in alphabetical order i need on another system which isn`t connected to the net . When a copy of the data base was installed on the other system via a disc , it wasn`t in alphabetical order , and when attempting to arrange it so , said it was a read only file and it couldn`t be done .

Can the data base be installed without connecting to the net ?

Did you try checking the properties by right clicking on the file? Usually when I burn the db's on a disk they become read only and I just uncheck the read only box in the properties after I install them in another location.
