I'm writing my first ASP.NET 4.0 application using C# with VS2010.

I am trying to export a stored procedure result set to an Excel 2003 file.

When I create the new Excel file, I notice that the title bar states that it is READ-ONLY.

Do you know how I can modify my following code to get rid of the READ-ONLY status on the Excel file?

My code is in the attachment:

As this file is considered "downloaded" for security reasons it is marked as read only. Try adding this site to trusted sites section in your browser( still I think it might not work and make the file read only)

Try this,

var fInfo = new FileInfo(YourFilePathName );
fInfo.IsReadOnly = false;

I don't think the solution provided by johny_bravo1 will work here. No offense johny_bravo1. This read only message is different than standard read only file scenario. Also this file being generated on server side this method will not have any impact.
