I tried the permission route, but the master_parts_list.cvs will not allow the read only flag to be removed. Even when I modify the list in either Excel or Notepad, I try to save the file and it will not let me, saying that the file path, to the file that I just altered, does not exist !!! How can I read it, if it does not exist ? I only have an old e-machine computer and Office 7, so maybe it will not, or cannot, alter the document, even though I gave myself permission and removed the read only flag from the file, but the document still has the read only flag.
