I am trying to modify records in a Clipper Database using ADO.

I tried with an SQL UPDATE in a connection execute.
I tried with a recordset.

When I try to update I receive an error 80004005 : Operation must use an updatable query.

The connection mode is read/write.
When I ask if the recordset supports update it replies True.
I try a Dynamic, Keyset recordset.

I have always the same error.

Has Anyone an idea ? If possible, I don't want to use DAO (I have not tried yet and I don't want to).

Thanks in advance.

Which ODBC driver are you using to access the .dbf file? Some drivers do not support updating of data even though it appears that they do.

Check to make sure that permissions are set properly on the database.  If you don't have write permissions on the database then you will get that error.

I deleted references to DBase files in ODBC then set them up again.
Now all works fine.
Thanks.
