i have a query that returns a datasheet, and then get an message that says the recordset is not updateable - i have narrowed it down to one of the tables, if i remove the table i can update the fields, if i add the table i cant, the table has a relantionship to the main table, i cant figure out what the problem is - any suggestions on what i can look at to fix the issue.
