I am doing a conversion of documents to RFT but I want the documents to open as read-only. Any suggestions? I do not want to have to save each document individually.

    From what file format is there that you are doing conversion to .RTF format which is generally a WordPad application. In WordPad anyone can makes changes even it is in read only mode. It is easy to save the file as Save As option. However more information is needed.

    I agree we need some more info. What is the existing format of the file to be converted and why the RTF format? Is that what the end user is requesting? IF you want a document that they cannot edit you may be better off converting it to a format like PDF. There are free apps that will let anyone open that file type and a plus is the PDF more widely used.

    Any time you send a file to a different system, there is the likelihood that the receiving user has authority on the receiving system to change file permissions.

    Can you describe why you think a .RTF file would remain read-only? Is it the received copy that you want to keep read-only? Or is it the master copy that you want to protect?
