Off topic, but my read only in winxp wont change...

P: n/a
hiye, i notice that some if not all of my folders in winxp
pro. are set as read only and its giving me some problem
with development. so as the natural thing, i unchecked the
read only option and click apply then click ok. and when i
right click on the same folder again JUST TO MAKE SURE the
read only option is checked AGAIN. so again, unchecked,
and again its check and the cycle repeats. anyway, i'm the
administrator to this computer. so i should have all the
almight power right?

i'm having sleepless nights here, please helpme out..
thanks.
yours truly,

Mano,

This isn't going to prevent you from saving data into your Access database.
For that operation, only the read-only attribute on the file itself is
checked. The read-only attribute of the folder is not an issue.
