    Re: SpreadSheet cannot be edited in Nokia Lumia 920

    Spreadsheet in your Nokia Lumia 920 Windows 8 Mobile seems to be in read only mode. This problem raises when you save the file in read only format. In such cases, when you open it, you can just read it but cannot edit it. So, what you can do is, you can save the copy on it and can edit it. When you save the copy on this file, it saves is normal spreadsheet and you have full permissions for editing. Sometimes spreadsheets containing formulas linking to another workbooks also makes the sheet read only, then you need to be aware on such things. So, keeping the copy on it helps in solving such problems. Hope this helps you in this problem.

    Dear guest,





    The problem that you are facing is that your spreadsheet is in read-only file... Hence you can't make any changes to it...

    To solve this problem you have to open your spreadsheet book, then save it.. Save As it in other name.... Now the file that you have saved becomes free from read only format and you can edit it.. Save as all such files...



    Thank you...

    Hello Hi....

    When the spread sheet cannot be edited in Nokia Lumia 920:

    This problem arises when the file is only in read only mode.

    copy the file and change the setting of the file to read and edit mode.

    apply the changes and save them.

    Thank you..
