    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!

    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.

    Have a great day and I will take care of the problem.

    Thanks Again!
