    Macro to open other workbook only if other workbook is not readonly

    Hello,
    Is there is simple and elegant way to do the following?
    Workbook A is the main macro based workbook which saves info onto workbook B. Looking for simple code to save the info in workbook B only if workbook B is editable, if workbook B is readonly then message code should pop up saying "Unable to save work, retry?"
    "No" should = exit sub and "yes" should retry opening in editable format and proceed with code.

    Thank you.
