Hi All,

I'm looking to write to the file properties of an MXD with DSOfile from inside an ArcMap session.  The Problem is that ArcMap has the file locked and even though i'm running the DSOfile from inside ArcMap.  I can't get write access to the file properties.   Any suggestion?

Dim sFile As String = GetThisMXDPath()
Dim oSummProps As DSOFile.SummaryProperties
m_oDocument = New DSOFile.OleDocumentPropertiesClass
            m_oDocument.Open(sFile, False, DSOFile.dsoFileOpenOptions.dsoOptionOpenReadOnlyIfNoWriteAccess)
Catch ex As Exception
End Try
' Here we can tell if file was open read-only...
'It always is
m_fOpenedReadOnly = m_oDocument.IsReadOnly

'Get the SummaryProperties...
oSummProps = m_oDocument.SummaryProperties
            oSummProps.Subject = "mySubject"
        Catch ex As Exception
End Try
