Database opens as READ ONLY

P: n/a
Tom
Just upgraded my old Access 97 DB to Access 2003. It is on a shiny new XP
Pro box. ON the new computer there is my domain administrator account and a
regular user account. If I open the DB in the Admin account, everything
works fine. If I open in the User account, I get a message telling me the
DB is in a read only mode and several of the update forms in the DB do not
work.

I prefer to have the users log in to their own account rather that have
everyone have domain admin permissions. How do I get this db to open
correctly. I have tried the "Runas" command and it didn't work.

Please help
Thanx
Tom

The database needs to reside in a folder that the user has full permissions
on. They need file create, edit, and delete authority on that folder.
