      Restart your computer to make the settings take effect.  If you need to save it as something so you don't have to do your work again then take the advice of the popup and use "save as" instead of "save".  Then reopen it and save it as the old name.  The restart should let any changes you made to the permissions take full effect.

        I did restart the computer..same thing, nothing happends. Also we don't want take the advice of the popup because there are some forms that we need to put some info in there
        and then saved that new info in the same spreadsheet. Last week we didn't have this problem. My guess is that somebody changed the settings of that folder and now, I don't know how to changed that back, the way it was before!!  ???

        Take the popup advice...it will not change the document...just the name.
        After you have access you can copy to it and then rename it back to what you like.
