Can't edit linked SQL table

I have a new database with about 20 SQL tables.  I linked them to Access 2007 and I can open all the table and change the data except for 1.  The one table I can't edit is my main table and is linked to 12 of the other tables.  Is there a limit?  I was able to add a record but as soon as I left the record and tried to edit it I get the error Write Conflict...Save (greyed out) Copy to Clipboard or Drop Changes.  Why just this one?  I've tried deleting the link and relinking with no luck.
Please help!
Thanks!

could have something with integrity that could have been set up

I forgot to mention that if I open SQL Server 2005 I can edit the table there.  That's why I thought it was linking but I've deleted and re linked with no success.  If it were an integrity thing would it still work in SQL Server?  I really don't know!  I'm stumped!
Thanks for your quick response.

{wild guess}
In SQL, double-click on the table, then click on the Permissions button, and see what the UPDATE-INSERT-DELETE permissions look like for the user you are linking with.

That sounds logical, if only I could find the permissions data.  I'm in SQL Server 2005, I've tried looking in properties.  I've tried the help button.  I'm sure it's obvious, just not to me.  Any additional help would be great!
Thanks!

I found the permissions tab (it was obious) but ther are no extra permisions and I'm setup with Admin permissions so I still can't find the problem.  I plan to unlink everything and relink next.  I'm running out of things to try.  But I'm still open to suggestions.
Thanks

I found it.  I had a field data type as Bit with null checked.  As soon as I unchecked it all was well again.

Now I don't know how to award points since I figured it out.  I thought there use to be a FAQ page and I can't find that either.

Thanks for all your help!
