Question: What is Operation Must Use An Updatable Query and how can I fix it?

Answer: This problem is normally caused because the directory your Access database is stored in does not have the correct privledges set.

Quoting from the following Microsoft KB article:

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q175/1/68.ASP

This error is typically encountered when your script attempts to perform an UPDATE or some other action that alters the information in the database. This error occurs because ADO is unable to write to the database for one of the following reasons:

The most common reason is that the Internet Guest account (IUSR_MACHINE), which is by default part of the "Everyone" group, does not have Write permissions on the database file (.mdb). To fix this problem, use the Security tab in Explorer to adjust the properties for this file so that the Internet Guest account has the correct permissions.

NOTE: When using Microsoft Access databases with ADO, it is also necessary to give the Internet Guest account Write permissions on the directory containing the .mdb file. This is because Jet creates an .ldb file to handle database locking. You may also need to give read/write permission on the "Temp" folder because Jet may create temporary files in this directory.
