I want to edit/update any record but it give me error :

Run-time error '2147467259 (80004005)
Insufficient key column information for updating or refreshing.

You should provide enough information in an updateable recordset, so that the database knows which row to update.
Make sure all primary key columns are in your recordset


I have two tables which are joined trhough relation in SQL command.

Table Reqdate = rdate (pk)

Table Inventory = rdate, name, lot, qty, balance

on the VB form I have rdate (from Reqdate), name, lot, qty, balance


And what is the primary key of your table 'Inventory'?


there is no primary key in inventory table
This one is on us!
