Python Error: [Errno 13] Permission denied:

P: 1
How come when i type this:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. signin=raw_input("Username: ")
  2. signin1=raw_input("Password: ")
  3. addon=('.txt')
  4. create1=signin + addon
  5. directory=r"d:Computer\OS(C:)\PROFILE TEXTS\\fmi11.ods"
  6. create=open(directory)
  7. create.read()
I get this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Users\user1\Desktop\Sign_In.py", line 6, in <module>
create=open(directory)
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 'd:Computer\\OS(C:)\\PROFILE TEXTS\\\\fmi11.ods'

That message is displayed when you do not have permission to open the file you are attempting to access.
