Recordset is not Updatable

Set mydb = Opendatabase("",false,false,"ODBC;DSN=MSSQLSRV;")
Set Data1.Recordset = mydb.OpenRecordset("test_table",dbOpenDynaset)
Now if I check Data1.Recordset.Updatable , it is false. Why ? mydb.Updatable is True. How can I create an updatable recordset on Data1 without setting the Data Control's Connect and Datasource property. I dont want the Data Control to open a connection of its own to the MS SQL Server 6.5 I have also tried Dim rs as Recordset but even rs turns out to be Updatable False.

If accessing SQL server, you should be using RDO from the Enterprise Edition.  Also, Table methods are not well received in an SQL server environment, because everybody else gets locked out, and that's a bad thing.  Finally, you need to step up to unbound controls, and manage the population and updating of resultsets in your own code.  And, you need to get to creating read only resultsets of limited scope (# rows), with update/insert using the execute method, rather than .edit/.update methods, because these as well make the SQL Server lock pages for a computer eternity, and that is also a bad thing!

I recommend you read "Hitchiker's Guide to Visual Basic & SQL (Server) from Microsoft Press, before you go much farther, or at least have it open as a reference.

I teach RDO to my students ! I can open an updatable resultset
and any DAO recordset turns out to be read-only. I thought this
could be a well-known bug and somebody could tell me the latest
bug-free version.
