When I open a file in access it tells me I have opened a read only file and read only attributes may have been set. But i don't have read only attributes. Any suggestions?

Are you sure you checked the mdb file to uncheck the 'read only' check box?

Right click the mdb file > under general tab > Attributes

Depending on the exact error you get, it can also be a file on a network drive (with only read permission for you).
Watch out : is you copy a file from a CD, it will stay read-only.
