I have a subform that is based on an updatable query. I can go into the query itself and do modifications, but cannot on the form itself. The field I am trying to update is not locked or disabled. Any ideas?

Perhaps the form has been set to AllowEdits=False? Check this in the Form Design view, properties dialog, Data tab.

Sorry ... glossed over the "subform" part.

Is your subform properly linked to the mainform (i.e. the Master/Child linkfields are properly set for the subform control)? This can cause your subform to behave like this as well.

Allow edits is set to true. The subform is not linked to the main form. The main form is unbound and strictly uses combo boxes, text boxes etc. to filter information for the subform.

When you make edits, can you actually make the edit, but it doesn't save, or does Access not allow you to make the edit at all?

Are you showing the status bar? If not, enable it and see if Access is providing any information ... Access uses this sometimes to alert you to issues.

Any code running the Enter/GotFocus/Activate events of that control (or any other events, for that matter)?

On the subform - Form property sheet ... Data tab:

Set the Recordset  Type to Dynaset (Inconsistent Updates)

What error are you getting?

Can you post the SQL for the subform Recordsource?

I am getting the error form is read only.
Here is the code that populates the subform:
  DoCmd.Hourglass True
    strSQL = "Select * " _
         & "    from qryBuyerReport "
    Set cnn = New ADODB.Connection
    cnn.Open pstrConnectionString
    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
        With rs
                  .Open Source:=strSQL, _
                  ActiveConnection:=cnn, _
                  CursorType:=adOpenKeyset, _
                  LockType:=adLockOptimistic
           'CursorLocation:= adUseClient
            If .RecordCount = 0 Then
             MsgBox "No Records Found"
            Else
              Set Me.objSubform.Form.Recordset = rs
              Me.objSubform.Form.Requery
            End If
            .Close
        End With
    Set rs = Nothing
    Me.cboItem = ""
    Me.cboVendor = ""
    Me.cboChain = ""
    Me.cboCategory = ""
    Me.chkPassover = 0
    Me.txtBuyerCode = ""
    Me.cboSubCat = ""
    DoCmd.Hourglass False
    cnn.Close
    Set cnn = Nothing

You must use the adUseClient CursorLocation with this method ... you've got it commented out for some reason.

I waited for someone to help, but nobody could give me an answer. I solved the problem myself.
