I've got a web site using an Access database that I've been writing scripts for awhile now.  I haven't had any problems.

All of a sudden, I get in today and try to open up the database directly and it's telling me the database is read only and I can't make any changes.  Upon checking the properties of the database, the read only box is UNchecked.  I'm also getting "operation must be an updatable query" when I try and access the database from any of my scripts.

Would this have something to do with the .ldb file that won't go away?  How can I get this fixed so that I can work in it?  Right now I can't make any changes to it at all..not good.  

Any information would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
