MS Access VBA to insert Page Numbers into Excel with Read-Only display

Hello Experts,

I am in the process of adding Page Numbers into an Excel workbook and when doing so, an error message appears that the workbook is read-only.

I attempted to correct by closing the workbook before opening; however, that was not successful.

Please advise as the debug feature highlights, “xlBook.Save”.

Private Sub WrkBKPages_Click()
Dim xlApp As Object
Dim xlBook As Object
Dim xlSheet As Object
Dim varCentreFooter As String
Dim rs As Recordset
Dim SSTab As String
Dim shtName As String
Dim ws As Worksheet
Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
DoCmd.Hourglass True
Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("TblReports")
rs.MoveFirst

xlApp.DisplayAlerts = False
'Set reference to Workbook object
xlApp.EnableEvents = False
'Call xlApp.Workbooks("H:\MasterReport.xls").Close
Set xlBook = xlApp.Workbooks.Open("H:\MasterReport.xls")  'S:\Finance\Finance Shared\CFIDIR\ANALYSIS\Close Reports\MasterReport.xls

For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets

ws.PageSetup.CenterFooter = "Page # &P"

Next

    xlBook.Save
    xlBook.Close SaveChanges:=True
    xlApp.Quit
    Set xlSheet = Nothing
    Set xlBook = Nothing
    Set xlApp = Nothing
 
 DoCmd.Hourglass False
MsgBox "The Workbook has Page Numbers!"

End Sub

Which line does the debugger jump to, and can you post a screen shot of the actual error message?

I just tried running code that updates the footer in a read-only workbook, and it runs successfully.

If you have a read-only workbook, you should probably be using SaveAs rather than Save.  I would also change "For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets" to "For Each ws In xlBook.Worksheets".
