We have a user that is only able to open Excel 03 files in Read Only. No other MS Office does this to her. It even happens to Excel files she has created and files that she receives in emails. Any ideas would be helpful since we are at a loss. Windows XP Pro SP2, MS Office w/Outlook 03. Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try reading <a href=”http://www.mvps.org/dmcritchie/excel/readonly.htm”>these tips.</a>. If none of those help, patch Office and XP to the latest Service Pack levels. If that does not work, repair office, if that does not work uninstall.reinstall office and patch again.

    I think it is due to your settings. Please change your excel setting to default, and your problem will resolve. Some times this problem is due to corrupt excel files in that case use excel repair software to fix your problem.
