This is what making the file itself would do. You can open and modify it all you want, but when you try to save it will not. BTW, you can do this to any file on your PC no matter what program created it.
That is true in general.

However, with a particular document the user could copy the read-only file to a new location with read-write permissions and then save it. Or the document could be emailed to someone else and then saved. Since the OP was trying to do this in VBA at first, it seems that he is looking to have an immutable document (at least as far as average users are concerned).
