Hello @Blanca88,

 

Is this file accessible through a shared network?

@PReagan

Hello,

1. Close and Right click on that particular Excel Workbook and select Properties.
2. Un-Check Read Only
3. Click OK.

Next time you open the workout, it won't show Read Only again.

Kindly let me know whether this works for you

I did as indicated, but while on properties the read-only box was not selected, so I selected it and applied changes and went back in to change to unselect read-only and now it works, thanks, everyone. This feature to be able to conversate and help others is great to have.
