I have transferred 2 databases i wrote some time ago from 1 computer to anther via cd. The databases on the new computer are now read only and I see no way of changing this. They were not read only on the original computer.
anyone know how to change them?
If you copied the database from cd to harddisk, using Win Explorer, they are read only. MS have decided to do so.
So change the properties of your format + database files: remove the read-only flag. (Click on file with right mouse button)
