Read-only from command prompt

Discussion in 'Project General' started by Conrad Santiago, Sep 16, 2004.

  1. Is there a way to open a .ppt file from the command line prompt in read-only
    mode? Are there command line options you can add to do this?

    Thanks for any input.

    Hi Conrad,

    This newsgroup is specifically for matters dealing with Microsoft Project.
    I suggest you try to find a more appropriate newsgroup that deals with
    powerpoint problems.

  3. Forgive me, typo. Let's try this again...

    Is there a way to open a .mpp file from the command line prompt in
    read-only mode? Are there command line options you can add to do
    this?

    Thanks for any input.

  4. If you're running from a cmd prompt - why not just set the file attribute +R
    first - and then open the file?

  5. Thanks for the question, Lars.

    As Scheduler, I will be using the .mpp file in a
    consolidated view. Meanwhile, the Project Manager may
    want to view the file read-only. I want to create a
    shortcut for the PM to open the file read-only.
    Any ideas?

  6. If the Scheduler alread has the file open read-write, the PM will
    automatically get a read-only copy of the file.
    Or am I missing something...?
