    opening excel doc from web page changes it to read

    Hi,
    I have a web page that when I click on a link to an excel doc, the doc come back as read only.
    Why is this happening and what can I do to have this not happen?
    thanks

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    If you open a document, be it a Word document, Excel workbook or whatever, directly from a web page it will always be read-only because you cannot save the changes back to the version stored on the web server. You can still edit the document, then save it with the changes to your hard disk.
