Excel workbook shows that is read only?

Post by BittenApple »

Hello all,
The workbook shows that is read only and it shows my name while I have not opened workbook at all so others when they want to do edit, it shows read only and can’t make changes. How to fix this problem?
Thanks
Clouds

Does the problem persist after you quit ad restart Excel? If so, after you restart your computer?
Regards,

Is this file in a shared folder? If so then also try rebooting the computer where the shared folder is
