ok, i have a database with about 7 tables, (its a microsoft access 2k database)... when i try to edit records (or add new ones), i get the error that the database is read only.... the permissions to the directory are all set right (read write, execute).... but it just won't write ... the weird thing is that it worked before, on my computer (PWS) but when i uploaded it to an IIS server it stopped working .. and bringing it back onto my server didn't work either... am i missing something here? please help... i've contacted the server's administrator and they say everything is fine and should work.... i've tried recreating the database from fresh several times on 2 different computers, with no success.... thank you for your help!
