Is there a way I can update a read-only workbook to reflect any changes that may have been made in the write version?

Thanks

You can save the Read Only workbook with a new name. Then delete the old version and replace it with the one you just saved. You will need to make the new file Read Only as well (assuming you still want it to be Read Only).

Sorry Jake,

I don't mean saving changes made to the read-only version, I mean updating the readonly version with the changes made on the read-write version (that is open on another PC)

Well... Just save the write version and close and reopen the Read Only version. Or is that not an option?

Yes, close and re-open the Read Only version. Once it's open, it will act on it's own and be independent of it's original workbook. You could write a macro to do it for you, but it'd probably be just as fast to close/re-open it. :)

Cheers all. I've fixed it as well as I think I can now.
