       Using Filemaker Pro 11 . Working through the examples in Missing manual and using the downloaded chapter examples I get the above message and cannot make changes to the file. Suggestiions?

          This error message is the operating system telling you that you don't have permission to save a modified copy of the file back to it's original location. (Filemaker saves automatically).

          Check the file and the folder that contains it to make sure that you have 'write' permission.

          If you opened the file from a CD or a zipped archive, you will not be able to make changes to the file until you copy it to a different location.
