    When copying a database file to give to my partner in our small business,
    the copied database becomes "read only". How can I get around that problem?
    I need to share my database with him so that he can enter data the same as I
    do and we can compare results to assure correct data entry.

    Thanks for the help!
    Ed

    If you're copying the database to/from a CD, the file's Read-only
    attribute will be set (because files on CDROMs are naturally expected to
    be read-only). If this is the problem, then after copying the file back
    onto a hard disk, right-click the file, choose Properties from the popup
    menu, and un-check the Read-only attribute on the property sheet.

    Thanks Dirk, I hadn't thought about that. I appreciate your rapid response.
    Have a great day and I will take care of the problem.

    Thanks Again!

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
