I have been running the same database for several months now with no problems. However today I tried to compact it and got an error message:

Record(s) can't be read; no read permission on 'database name'.

I have checked all the permissions and they appear to be fine. I have no problems using the database, viewing data, updating, etc....

Any ideas anyone?

Have you checked the folder rights (you need Read, Write, Erase, Create, File Scan)? Is this a secure database? Make sure you have permissions to administer at database level in the security. These are just a few things.

Hi, you can try to repair first the database and than to compact it.
 If that don't work you can import all objects (use select all when you import) into a new (empty) database, and repair and compact this one.

Thanks, I had tried repairing it but it hadn't helped.
So I created a new database and imported all the objects as you suggested and now everything appears to be fine.

Any ideas what was wrong, or shall I just blame Bill Gates?

I can't really tell what happened. From time to time, there are damaged objects (forms, reports, ...) so it can't rapair or compresse the base.
 I saw that if I've got an error, then I break into code and I make modifications, then I continue, there is big probability that in the future I'll find an damaged object.
 So I always when I want to modify something I open the base (with shift), and when I finish I compile and save all modules.
 Regards
