VB6 - DAO - ReadOnly don't work

I want to open a database in ReadOnly mode.

set db = opendatabase("c:\temp\test.mdb", ReadOnly := True)

I can always write to the tables of this db, even open in ReadOnly.

Is it a bug ?

I want to have an error when I try to write to this database. Is it possible ? How ?

Thanks.

Set db = DBEngine.Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase("c:\temp\test.mdb", False, False)
         ^
         This is the Read Only set it to False as above...

Try without using a named argument.
Set <database> = OpenDatabase(dbname, options, readonly, connect)

If you're creating a record set, specify that as read only. The following code produces an error when attempting to add a record.

Dim db As Database
Dim rs As Recordset

Set db = OpenDatabase("c:\temp\test.mdb")
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("Table1", dbOpenDynaset, dbReadOnly)

With rs
    .AddNew
    !Field1 = "newinfo"
    .Update
End With

To jgv:

It'working... But I want to have the DATABASE readonly. So I don't need to specify dbReadOnly each time I open a recordset.
I thought use that to open the database read-only for users and read-write for managers. So I don't have to change my code.

Thanks

Dim ws As Workspace
Dim db As Database

Dim sql as String

Private Sub Command2_Click()
Dim iCNT%
 
    Set ws = Workspaces(0)
   
    Set db = ws.OpenDatabase("C:\Door\Door.mdb")
   
    sql = "select * from Door"
   
    Set rs = db.OpenRecordset(sql)

:
      sTerm = DateDiff("s", sSTime, sETime)
   
      rs.AddNew '<- Insert Data
   
      rs.Fields("DoorOPT") = sSND & " " & sSNT
      rs.Fields("DoorCLT") = sEND & " " & sENT
      rs.Fields("DoorTRM") = sTerm

      rs.Update '<- Very Important
