installed office 2003 on new win 7 computer, moved 3 excel files to new computer.entered info into checkbook register, it did all the calculations. went to save it and said it was read only. checked preferences and read only was clear. also get message the file name or path does not exist- the file is being used by another program- the workbook you are trying to save has the same name as currently open workbook. If i put the file on a thumb drive and run it from thumb drive it works perfectly.something happens when i put the file onto the win 7 hard drive. I am stumped. any help will be appreciated. mrvinnie

Hi mrvinnie :welcome:

Please enlighten me, where did the 3 Excel files resided before you move them?

Try copy instead of move.
