I inserted a database by using FTP and I started getting these errors...<BR>"Operation must use an updateable query" and <BR>"Cannot Update. Database or object is read-only"<BR><BR>I knew that it had nothing to do with the permissions and so I opened the web folder in Frontpage and then inserted the database and created a connection string when prompted.<BR><BR>Everything works fine now. Although I am not using the connection string. I am so confused on whats happening. I want to be able to upload files using FTP. Can anyone tell me whats going on.<BR><BR>Here is the code i used to connect to the database.<BR><BR>&#060;%<BR>testdb="./group.mdb"<BR>myDSN="PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB. 4.0;"<BR>myDSN=myDSN & "DATA SOURCE =" & server.mappath(testdb) & ";"<BR>set rs=server.createobject("adodb.recordset")<BR>rs.op en sql, myDSN, 3, 3<BR>%&#062;<BR><BR><BR>
