Is your file set to Read Only?

To change this, go into Windows Explorer, find the folder containing your 
file, right click the filename and left click "Properties"

Now, remove the checkmark from "Read Only", go back into Excel and try again.

Hope this helps


Click on File, Save As, then click the "Tools" button at the top left of the 
dialog box.

Are you on a network and message reads....

"file isn't accessible
unavailable volume or invalid password."

If so..........

Reports indicate the issue is caused by Windows XP update Q885250.
Uninstalling it appears to resolve the problem.

To uninstall Q885250 go to Control Panels>Add Remove and click on "Show

Scroll to Q885250 and uninstall it.

If not the above............

Check out these threads on google.

Security Role cannot be saved
Let's say I adjusted some users security role, and I save it. For some reason, I re-open the security role and I found out the security role was back in the original state. What's the reason?

Save a new file with the name that is in cell "C7"
Here is what I want to do: Open up a template. Enter information.

Time Stamp of a Save As file Doesn't Change from Original
I use a few Excel worksheets as templates. I open them, edit them with new information, and use Save As and save them with new filenames. I've been doing this for a couple of years now and this has always worked great. About a month ago, I noticed that the date stamp and time stamp of the new files I create are always the same: 12/29/2003 9:27 PM. I can open one of the worksheets that has such a date/time stamp and save it as a different name, and it still will have that same date/time stamp. I think there must be some kind of corruption in the worksheet -- a kind of corruption that's ...

Word 2010: cannot save normal.dotm file?
Using the Word 2010 beta on Win7. I cannot save my Normal.dotm file - at least not usefully. I can open the file, edit it, add macros to it, whatever, and it will save (in the folder directory, the .dotm file will show a change in file size). But if I close Word, or if I open a new document in Word, the Normal.dotm file is reset to the default, losing any changes I've made. I can save and use other .dotm templates; but not the default Normal.dotm template. You've posted to the Mac Word group, so there isn't much help available here on a Beta version for Windows. Tr...

Publisher can't Save
We have a PC with a 2 gig hard drive (C) and a 20 gig hard drive (D). We installed Publisher on the bigger drive, since C only had about 100 meg free. We are having a problem trying to save to D, it tells us the drive is full but there are 11 gig available. I am thinking that the Undo support may be automatically saving the file to C as changes are made and it gets filled up; when we try to save Publisher to D it gets confused. We have the same error message trying to save the 36K file to a blank 1.4 meg floppy as A. We are running Publisher 2002 pretty much as it came out of the box. I d...

Word document titles
Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Power PC When I download and open a Word document from my internet email account, Word documents open with a generic "Document 1" title instead of the actual name of the document as sent to me. If I open a document that was saved to my desktop, it opens with its actual title name. It's a seriously bad idea to open anything from within your email. You short-circuit the system protection and risk getting taken out by Internet Nasties. It sounds as though the file you are downloading is a Template (a file of type...
