    Hello everyone,
    I have set up a DSN for the database, ought to be no read-only attributes
    set.
    On the other hand, when I tried to open the database with Access XP, it said
    the database was read-only and I couldn't modify it. I checked the file
    attribute, it was also not read-only. What other reasons can it be for
    read-only database while it doesn't seem to be?
    Thanks
    Jack

    If there aren't modify, read, write, and delete permissions on the folder
    that houses the database, you will only be able to run a single user. All
    other users will be read-only. All permissions, with the exception of Full
    Control are required.
