Hi Chipp,

Unfortunately it's not as simple as
  set the lockText of file tFile to true
*grin*

What you can do, is let WinXP do it for you with
  get shell("attrib" && tFile && "-R")

If you ever need to do it on a Mac, I'm sure someone
can tell you the equivalent piece of AppleScript to
execute...

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
