Hello experts,

I'm working with a database application and are specifying readonly as false. I would like to change this to True in runtime. I can't get it to work.
I use .MDB files.

Regards

By using data control, you need to close the form which the control resides on and terminate the reference by:

Set myForm = Nothing

Then re-load it again with ReadOnly = True
