I have a query in Access 2007 which is not updateable, but I cannot find out why.
The SQL looks like this:

SELECT [Kontakter som synkas].ID, [TEMP Personer plus relationer].tempID, [Kontakter som synkas].LastName, [Kontakter som synkas].Company
FROM [Kontakter som synkas] INNER JOIN [TEMP Personer plus relationer] ON [Kontakter som synkas].LastName = [TEMP Personer plus relationer].Efternamn;

There are no fields in the tables which are required.
Do you know why the query is not updateable?

it is probably your join and the fact that there is no unique identifier

No, no relationship at all (is that maybe the problem)?
but... I now understand what you mean with unique identifyer. It seems it can only be updateable if the join is between fields which are indexed as unique and this is not the case in my database. I will make a try with using a form and subforms instead and see if that works...

those forms will need a unique id there as well.
