How to modify paradox table from asp pages

Hello,

I'm working in ASP and I need to modify contents on a Paradox table. I'm able to connect to list contents with this string connection:

odbc_paradox="Provider=MSDASQL;Persist Security Info=False;Mode=Read;Extended Properties='DSN=Paradox;DBQ=f:\accesoparadox\db;DefaultDir=f:\accesoparadox\db;DriverId=538;FIL=Paradox 7.X;MaxBufferSize=2048;PageTimeout=600;';Initial Catalog=f:\accesoparadox\db;"

As I say, I can read from the tables, but when I try to update some content:

  SQL = "UPDATE NAMES SET "
  SQL = SQL & "name='name' WHERE id_NAME='00000'"        
  SET rec = Bb.Execute(SQL)

I get this error:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'
[Microsoft][Controlador ODBC Paradox] La operación debe usar una consulta actualizable.
(that translated says that the operatin must use a updatable query)

Can anyone tell me how can I convert my connection string in a updatable way to modify the table?
Thanks a lot and Kind Regards.

The first problem might be "Mode=Read"

Second give the write permission to f:\accesoparadox folder.

Thanks, when I set "Mode=Write" the error changes to:

Multiple-step OLE DB operation generated errors. Check each OLE DB status value, if available. No work was done.

I'm going to re-assign write permission to folder (there was, but I'm going to take it out and reassign again)
