Remember, it will do a SAVE AS, but the following SAVE commands don't work.
It says that the name is taken.
I just add a #1, #2 or so on to end of the name., but the number starts to grow pretty quick!
IF it was set to READ ONLY in permissions wouldn't it not let me do a SAVE AS?
No - because then you're writing a new file - essentially, doing a save you're deleting the old file, then replacing it with a new one. Save as, you're not touching the old file, just creating a new one (and it sounds like you're creating it with read only permissions for whatever reason). If the disk itself was write protected...then you wouldn't be able to save as either.
It is a weird problem though.
