cmd + i on the document, and change the r/w settings at the bottom of the window that comes up. if they are greyed out, click the lock to the right and authorise.

If you find a post helpful, don't forget to use the reputation system (top right of post.)

Open Finder, then go to the directory where this document is located, click once and then hit CMD+I or right click and choose 'Get Info'. Towards the bottom of the window that will appear check to see what your permissions to the file are. It should say "You have read/write access" or something to that effect.

If not, ensure that you have write access..
