    Word Read-only message (WordXP SP3)

    Hi

    I have these word documents from a client, on opening the document the following Read-only message appears. If I click on 'NO' I can edit the document. How can I remove this message so it doesnt appear on Open?

    any ideas
    thanks Diana

    Open a document (and click No at the prompt)
    Select Tools | Options...
    Activate the Security tab.
    If the "Read-only recommended" check box is ticked, clear it.
    Click OK.
    You'll have to repeat this for each document (or write a macro to do so).
