I don't really understand Wade Smart's response, but have you tried
right-clicking in the affect cell and selecting 'Unprotect Cells'?

I am using a table to list all of our scattered names, phone numbers, etc
to keep them together in alphabetical order. It means I guess where the
names go and cut and paste to put entries in the correct places. All has
been fine, until now.
Now suddenly, I can't cut and paste one of the cells. It cuts, but won't
paste where I want it to go.. I tried to just write the information into
the cell and get this message: "Read only content; Write protected content
cannot be changed. No modifications will not be accepted"
It's my document for heaven's sake. I didn't write protect it. I've tried
to find a place under the table menu where something got changed and can't.
If I have to I'll try save it under another name and then see if the
problem sticks, but I shouldn't have to.
Can anyone tell me how this glitch happened and if there's anything I can
do to change it?
I've been working all day and hoped to finish tonight. What's wrong with
this program! I would be so grateful for an answer!
