Read Only problem

P: n/a
I have created a pretty straight forward database for one of the
departments where I work. It's based on a design I used sucessfully for
my own department so all of the components are tried and tested.
Everything was working swimingly until now. Whenever a user opens the
databse, it will only open in read only format. Does anyone have any
idea why this might be happening, also how do I reverse this?

Thanks in anticipation!

Is it possible that your database is now located in a directory where users
don't have all permissions?
To effectively run an Access database in a shared environment, users must
have read, modify, create and delete permissions on that folder.
