Experts,

I am use Lotus Script to collect fields from selected and populate a specific Excel template. The report is meant to be a raw data export and I was hoping to add a read-only property to this file save entry. Can anyone help?
      
'identify and save the file
      x1App.ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "H:\Data\"+ db.Title + " on " +RServer(0) + "_" + RDate +".xls"
      x1App.Application.ActiveWindow.Close (False)
      
      x1App.Application.Quit
      Set x1App=Nothing

All you can do to protect excel sheet is to use built-in protect worksheet option:

YOu can add a Read-only recommended property using the SaveAs method, or you can actually set the file attributes (it would be SetAttr in VBA).

Since we haven't received any response, I'm not really sure if my answer is what he really wanted to do...
When I read it now, it seems that rorya was on the right track.
