I am trying to use Crystal Reports 2008 SP1 with an Access database.  The Access database does not have a password when I open it, and I can view all the tables and fields.  When I open the database through Crystal Reports, it sees all of the tables however I can only use a few of the tables.  The rest of the tables gives me errors like the following:

Crystal Reports
Database Connector Error: 'DAO Error Code: 0xc26
Source: DAO.Fields
Description: Could not read definitions; no read definitions permission for table or query 'Contacts_Phone'.'

    What version of Access?

    If 2003 or earlier (or the .mdb format), open Access, then click Tools - Security - User and Group Permissions, then select the Table that you want to review and check the Owner tab. It should be listed as Admin. If it's anything else, you may try to build a new, blank database and import everything into that new databse. This should change the Owner back to Admin.
