I am using Visual Basic 2008 Express (can't buy full Visual Studio here at work). I have a Windows applications connecting to an Access database. I wrote code to update records in the database (different tables). With one table, when I include certain fields in the update command line, I get an error "field not updateable". The database resides on a mapped drive, so is it a permissions thing? But why on certain fields? They are all text/string fields.
