Removing encryption/ Read Only Attribute - Excel 2003 on Windows XP Platform RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    How to Remove encryption/ Read Only Attribute of Excel 2003 files (typically stored inside a folder) on Windows XP Platform.  When I try to remove "Read Only" attribute from the folder and "Apply", this does not take effect.  I have logged in as Local Administrator.  I tried as Domain Administrator too.  It throws an error message : "Can not access Read Only File.  Access Denied".

    Appreciate your time and suggestion.
