Hi,
I have a MS Access database project which is connect a SQL server database.
There is a table has a column with "char" format. I found this column can't be edit when I open this database in MS Access. But it will be editable if I change the format to "varchar".
Could someone tell me why?

Many Thanks,

Does the table have a key? I don't think Access will allow you to update it otherwise.

Access Data Projects (ADPs) are a legacy technology that Microsoft no longer supports. They are probably best avoided.
