    I don't want to turn off "enable editing" globally - so would like to include a line of code when I open a particular file so that editing is enabled for the duration of the macro (it is saved and closed towards the end).

    A macro which worked well in 2003 falls over now we have 2010 - I get an error message that the file is read only - this leads me to believe it needs to be edit enabled.

    Thanks

    Hi Roberta,

    It would be helpful if you posted the 2003 macro. Also, have you checked the file's read-only attribute setting via Windows Explorer?
    Cheers,
