Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80004005'

When I want to insert a record in the access database, available online.  I got following message.

"Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80004005'
Operation must use an updateable query"

The code, i m using is as follows...

<%
set conn=Server.Createobject("ADODB.Connection")
conn.Provider="Microsoft.jet.OLEDB.4.0"
conn.open Server.MapPath("\")&"\test.mdb"
conn.execute("insert into newsletters values('test','test')")
conn.close
set conn=nothing
%>

This works very well on local configurations.  But problem is with the database available on my ISP's web server.
But when i wanna retrieve any record from the database it is accebile, but the problem is with insertion only.

I'm not sure it will solve your problem but it probably worth to try:

if for instance you have 2 field in your database
named "field1" and "field2" and you wish to assign the value "Field1 Value" to field1 and "Field2 Value" to field2
that your query may look like this:

INSERT INTO newletters(field1, field2) VALUES('Field1 Value', 'Field2 Value');

I hope it was helpfull -)

Try to use this


<%
db = Server.MapPath("databasepath/test.mdb")
conn2 = "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=" &db
set conn=Server.Createobject("ADODB.Connection")
conn.execute("insert into newsletters values('test','test')")
conn.close
set conn=nothing
%>

your query is fine.
problem is with your newletter table.
just check it's structure.
is it bound by some relationships?
better still, post the structure.

Everything is fine.. this is a permission issue.. contact your isp administrator and tell him to grant the IUSR write/change permission on the database..

Try to add other data as "test", "test".

Maybe you have defined some Primary Keys in your database, and then you tried to add (via an insert) these values again which fails of course, since primary keys are unique it doesn't accept this.

If this is the problem, tell us and we provide some solutions for that also.

Thanks for replying on my question, but just see that i m saying that its working well on my local configurations. It means there isn't any problem with primary key, permissions or with the query.
Zeheb and weesiong as for as i think As i have 2 fields in the database so i dont need to write the names of fields.

Hello.. operation must be an updatable query this error is given when the database is only read only! when you upkloaded the mdb to the isp it inherited the permissions from its parent directory that are by default READ only!!! stop turning in around..

...this is why you can only read but not write! permissions on your local server are not sent to the ISP web server.. (otherwise all the web servers will be hacked..
