Cannot Add New User to access.mdw file

By Jeangenie ·
I am trying to Add a New User to a security file in Access 2003 - something which I have done several times in the past. Now I get error "Cannot update.Database or object is read-only". I have checked the permissions and neither the .mdw or the database is read-only. I can amend the data in the database.

Any ideas ?

Changes to the file?

Has the file moved at all? Sometimes copying from one location to another will alter properties. Check the folder, as well. Verify that your account still had the appropriate permissions.

Convert your old MDW file

I suppose you are still using a 97 MDW file, but you are trying to add users with ADO!? If so you need to convert the MDW file to 2000 format.
