Record not updateable

I have three tables; two are local, and one from the AS/400.

I link all these table in a query, and there is a message say that “Record not updatable”.

When I remove the table from the AS/400,  and leave the two local table it does allow me to change any record I want.

I do have permission to write to the AS/400 table. I will not let me update the record only when I connect these three tables together.

Explanation or help are much appreciated.

The fact that the table is AS400 is really a red herring.  The issue is the ability to update recordsets when there are 3 tables involved.  In short, it doesn't know what you want to update as the information could be from any of the three tables.

It may or may not work, but ensure that you have the primary keys from each of the 3 tables included in the results, that could help.

Walt,

Is there a  way around this? I am using this  for a form, and I am trying to avoid a sub form if I can.
