I wrote a macro to open a file as Read Only, so normally even if that file is allready open it should open as Read Only no ??

Now when the file is allready open and I run the macro I stil get that stupid notification "Open as read Only - Notify - Cancel"

Does anyone now how to bypass this annoying notification ??

Here is the macro

Application.DisplayAlerts = wdAlertsNone

Documents.Open FileName:="d2.doc", ConfirmConversions:=False, ReadOnly:= _
True, AddToRecentFiles:=False, PasswordDocument:="", PasswordTemplate:="" _
, Revert:=True, WritePasswordDocument:="", WritePasswordTemplate:="", _

PS: It is only on the Office 2000 version, with all other versions I don't get this message

Hope you can help me out

ive been there done that

to answer ur question
Does anyone now how to bypass this annoying notification ??

Not to my knowledge

if u still have the app open it still will bring up the "locked for editing" message

if u know this and want to get rid of it then open task manager and end teh process in either applixccations or processes tabh

hope that helps

VBA is cool but can get tricky at times
