PRB: ASP Returns 'Operation Must Use an Updateable Query' Error

Most common cause is #1 - permissions problem. However instead of
IUSR_<machinename> check out Machinename\ASPNET user account on Windows XP
and Windows 2000 and NT Authority\Network Service on IIS6 since you are using

Otherwise, there are a few other causes, and they are listed as #2 through #4

: When attempting to insert into, update, or delete rows of an access
: database, I am able to do so on my local development server.  But when I
: upload to the production server, I get this error.  I checked permission on
: the database and set them accordingly, so I don't think that's the problem.
: I'm out of ideas.   Again... it works just fine on my local server.
: Anyone?  Thank you!
