MS Access goes into read only mode

P: 27
Has anyone encountered this, I uploaded an access database front end and back end on a client server and nothing was editable I opened the backend and all of the tables were non editable it was like read only mode. file properties didnt show read only. I could rename it open it and it would work fine. change the name back and read only again. I can do a work around by adding a subdirectory and copying the files into it but I am concerned the problem will keep occuring when I do updates. Any ideas?

Have you tried opening it explicitly from the folder. If you open it from your recent file list then it will remember the mode used then.
