An employee recently moved here from a previous location, and brought a ton of files with her on CD, which she copied onto the PC. Now whenever she opens them, Excel says they are read only. I had her remove the read only attribute from the files if it was there. Windows claims they are not read-only and Excel says they are. What options in Excel could make a file show up as read only when the Windows attribute says it is Read-Write?
