Default Access 2000 Read-Only Problem

Hi there,

I created a db using Access 2000. When i tried opening the database using the UNC path, it says that the database is read-only. I cannot do any modifications to the db at all. If i use the path C:\Company\Database, then its not read only. I don't understand why. I really need to open the database using the UNC path since this is connected to a VB program and it uses the UNC. Since at present, my db is readonly, i cannot run the program properly. Could anyone kindly help me out please...

Thank you very much in advance!

You may want to try a different connection method than OLEDB since I have found some documentation that says "Remote server, HTTP, and UNC path names are not supported," since the client resolves the substitution strings into full paths against the local computer file system.

Perhaps you can have your network people map the drive where the database is to all your users' computers using the same path structure, as we do.

I hope this was helpful.
