Operation must use an updateable query

Hi,,
I am trying to insert  data in access table in my asp.net application.
Locally it is working fine but on my web server it is throwing the above exception.
What is the cause of this?

It's a permissions issue.  You have to apply Modify permissions to the ASPNET account on your Access database.  Right click on the file, select the Security tab, then Add to find the ASPNET account

well from looking at your query, I cant see anything wrong with it

what datatype is Number1, is it text? if its numeric then remove the single quotes

 string sqlinsert = "insert into MemberData (MName,CName,Number1,Email1,Address)values ('" + name + "','" + cname + "'," + number1 + ",'" + email1 + "','" + address + "')";


Have u looked into using parameters ? have a look at how its done here http://aspnet101.com/aspnet101/tutorials.aspx?id=1

Also, look at this. It is talking about permissions http://forums.asp.net/t/154273.aspx

Does your Access DB have Read and Write permissions on the server?

ya but I am not authorised to do anything on web server.

It is a third party server.

I can create a DSN for access.That's it what I can do there.

You may need to contact the Server Administrator and ask him/her to enable Write permissions (full permissions) on your .MDB
