Default read-only probs in msaccess db using asp form


I copied a .mdb file from an installation (os: XP professional) to another installation where the os is windows 2000 using a cd. When I installed the file property shows 'read-only'. I unchecked 'read-only' mode. I can add record to any table of the database through MSAccess tool but I can not add record to any table using ASP forms. The error I get is as follows:

Error Type:
Microsoft JET Database Engine (0x80040E09)
Cannot update. Database or object is read-only.
/praxis-biodata/AddSpTrgDB.asp, line 19

I cannot find any reason why the tables are read-only. In the old installation things are working perfectly. Could you please help me?

Thanks in advance

Hi there,

This usually indicates a permissions problem. The account your Web server is running under does not have the proper permissions to change the database and the folder it resides in. To fix this, give the IUSR_MachineName permissions to change the database and the folder it resides in.
