Can you change the attribute of an exported document to Word? I need the saved Word document to be read-only.
Part of the code that displays the generated document and saving.

wordobj.AppShow
wordobj.filesaveas "c:\Work\SMP\" & CNno & ".doc"
Thanks!

Look atthe parameters for Word's SaveAs... one of them sets the file to read-only.

SaveAs(FileName, FileFormat, LockComments, Password, AddToRecentFiles, WritePassword, ReadOnlyRecommended, EmbedTrueTypeFonts, SaveNativePictureFormat, SaveFormsData, SaveAsAOCELetter)

ReadOnlyRecommended   Optional Variant. True to have Word suggest read-only status whenever the document is opened.


So, .SaveAs "c:\Work\SMP\" & CNno & ".doc" , , , , , , True

Yes, but the user has to set this. I'd like the user not be able to edit the file that was converted from Notes to Word.
