Okay here's the deal. I've recently taken over maintenance on several databases. The person (owner) who created these databases has left and not able to be contacted. Problem I am running into is this. I have a database that suddenly stopped working, it will not allow anyone to enter data using the form. The only way they can enter data is directly into the table. Whenever I go into this database to work on it I get a message stating the following "You don't have permission to modify "Commitment Information Form - To modoify this object, you must have Modify Design permission for it. If the object is a table, you must also have Delete Data and Update Data permissions for it. Do you want to open it as read-only?" I have a good background in Access, however, I haven't worked alot on the whole "Permission" peice of Access. I'm stuck, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
