Remove (read only) when copied to cd

Postby shaw » Tue Dec 11, 2007 1:12 am

When I copy a calc sheet to a cd, is protected. I have cells that are unprotected for user access. When the sheet opens on the cd, it opens as read only, and the open cells are non accessable. I do not have the read only box checked in the properties box when copying, but it is checked on the cd after the copy is made. Help.

I think you will find that as its on non-writable media, it is by default read only. Save it to a hard drive it then becomes editable again.

When I copy the same sheet using Microsoft office (Excel), It also opens as a read only document, but I can access non protected cell ranges. Any more suggestions? Thanks

Copy a template (*.ots) to the CD.
