I have a program that was created to take info from a paradox database and place the info into a sql database.  The program has been working fine until a power outage 3 days ago.  The program now returns a permissions denied error when i run it.  I can see the files coming in on the debug log but it always fails when trying to write to SQL all of the sudden.  I've checked my SQL permissions everyplace i can think of.......Please help- at this point we're really hurting for an answer.

1) What is the exact error you are getting?
2) Does everything else appear to be normal from the SQL side (i.e., you can log in from ISQL and other applications, run queries, etc.)?

Everything appears to be fine.  The error is simply permission denied and its not a stock microsoft error.

This is a wild shot, but I seem to remember something about how SQL Server will mark a data file as read-only if the system crashes.  Check the file attributes of the physical files for your database data and see if any are marked Read-Only
