I would need to see what your queries are. -----Original Message----- I'm creating a dsn-less connection to an access database, Everything works fine on our development server, but on the clients server attempts to use the INSERT INTO or UPDATE sql queries generates this error: Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80004005' Operation must use an updateable query. I'm connecting with... set Conn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection") Conn.ConnectionString="Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & server.mappath("../database/******db.mdb") Conn.Open And using conn.Execute to execute the generated SQL string. Writing out the SQL shows the SQL is formatted correctly. Any ideas why it breaks like this? Thanks.
