Hi,

I have created an access database and copied it to a disk but it is opening as read only. I have checked the properties in access and all seems ok. Is their something else I should be doing.

Did you copy the database to a hard drive or are you trying to access the one on the CD? If you are trying to access the one on CD then that explains the problem. If it is now on a hard drive it should open with no problem. If I remember I copied one from a cd once and it was still read only, try right clicking on the icon and see what those properties are if the read only box isn't checked then it should be OK or there is another issue some where. Let us know where things stand and we will see what your options are.

Hi,

I copied the database from my C drive and it is not mared as read only. I have viewed the properties of the database on the CD and it is ticked as read only I have removed the tick and I am receiving a error message - "An error occured applying attributes to the file" "access denied"

Are you using a recordable CD or a rewritable? It might be the same for both and probably doesn't matter however on a CD it will remain as read only. There is no way I know of to change the state of it once it is on a CD. Have you tried purchasing a jump drive? I have used these for quite sometime with no ill effects even though it could happen, although jump drives are not designed to be used as a hard drive you might be able to get away with it.
