Change File Permission of File Created on a Unix System
20 views (last 30 days)
A file I am generating in MATLAB in Unix is being created with write permission to all users, but when I try to view the file on Windows, it is Read-Only.
TemplateFile = 'MyTemplate.pptx';
NewFile = 'MyNewFile.pptx';
fileattrib(NewFile,'+w'); % set write access.
The file is generated without issue, but when I try to modify it on a windows machine, it will not let me. I have tried adding a user to the fielattrib command, but it has not been successful.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

Does your Windows account has write permissions in the folder?
Which error message do you see in which program? Maybe the file is password protected and the access limitation is not a problem of the file system.
