I have tried Cmd Attrib and the Explore Properties approaches to no avail.
If XLStart Dir's are Read only they cannot be accessed.
I say dir's plural because (1) \Program files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\XLSTART (herein "DirOne") and
(2) \Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART (herein "DirTwo") each are XLSTART dir's.
This problem occurred after I followed MSoft's Office tutotial advice as to creating in DirOne a Book.xlt template with custom file characteristics.
QUESRTION 1: What is reversing my changing the read only attribute in each of the two dir's back to read only immediately after I remove the read only check mark?
Question 2: Should there be two XLStart dir's or only one?
As long as the XLSTART dir is read only, every time I open Excel, I must navigate through two err wins advising that XLSTART cannot be accessed due to read only or encryption designations. (Thanks again Bill G.)
