I import a table into my MS Access database from another MS Access database using  the "DoCmd.TransferDatabase" and the table arrives as read-only.  I need a way to programatically change the read-only status either on the way in, or after it arrives.

Inherently, a Table by itself is not Read Only.  

Do you mean if you open the table directly, you cannot edit data ?

Jeeeze !!!,  I meant "hidden" - not "read only"!!  Should I start all over with a new question or just continue on with this comment explaining the problem?
