    Hello experts:

    I've recently received a project from a fellow employee who has since
    left the office. This project involves an Access database (97 format).
    The database has a few tables, a couple queries, several forms, and
    some additional macros.

    Several employees populate the tables through the aforementioned forms
    via a network. Because of this, the database creator disabled
    (probably among other things) the save function to protect the
    integrity of the database.

    As the new owner of the database, I need to now save new features. Can
    anyone tell me what my predecessor has possibly done and how I can
    change it? Thanks for any help.

    Note: The database does not appear to be read-only.

    I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "the save function" - perhaps that the
    menu option is grayed out? At any rate, try opening the mdb file while
    holding the shift key down to bypass startup options. If you have an MDE
    file rather than an MDB file you may be out of luck, as an MDE is compiled
    and non-editable.

    I know about the shift key to bypass the forms. When I enter the
    database even using the shift key, I am unable to make any changes
    which will save to the database. The save option is unavailable;
    it's grayed out.

    I can import tables to this database. I cannot, however, make any
    changes to the imported tables once they enter the database.

    Is this an MBD or MDE? You said it's Access 97 - are you using Access 97 or
    a later version? Do you get any convert notice when opening the db?
