Excel 2016 and 2010 - 'Read-Only'

Last Modified: 2017-03-31
I'm developing an Excel solution in Excel 2016, but my client is using it on Excel 2010 Standard. She tells me that, when I email the file to her (and saved on a local drive) the file says 'Read-Only' when opened.

No one else has it open, as she has only just received it from me.

Has anyone come across this?

Sorry. Chaps, I was wrong. It becomes read only when she opens it from the email.

Problem solved.
