    I have Access 2k on my PC. I setup a system DSN on my machine so I can
    conecct to my SQL7 database.
    All looks good, I can see the data. When I modify or add data, it doesn't
    save it to teh SQL server.

    Is there some special trick that needs to happen so that it saves?

    Do you get an error or are your keystrokes ignored? One of the two should be
    happening. The latter usually means that the table has no primary key on the
    SQL Server causing the link to be read only. The former is usually explained by
    the error message.

    Nope, no errors. I type to my hearts content. But when I close access,
    everything I entered is not replicated to teh server.

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!
