My husband uses Excel Mac 2004 on his MacPro with  OS 10.6.8.  Under System Prefs he is listed as "admin," as I am.  However, on several of his excel docs he receives a "read-only" message when he tries to save changes.  If I go into the get info window, and unlock with the system password, I am still unable to change the permission:  Read-only is the only option I get. How can I correct this problem, and is there a way to globally correct it on all his Excel docs?

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Excel Mac 2004
