Sharepoint List Exported to Excel - Columns are readonly RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I have Excel 2003 SP3. I exported a list from a Sharepoint site, by saving the owssvr.iqy file when prompted, then opening the file, which launches Excel.

    However, I cannot edit any of the contents of the list cells. In all cases, I see an error dialog appear such as: 
    "The xxx column is a read-only column that cannot be modified."

    I have asked this question elsewhere, but to no avail...

    Any suggestions welcome.
