SQL express 2008 odbc MS Access table read only

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I use SQL Express 2008 on a central computer (winxp)
On another computer a have linked a table into MS Access 2007 via ODBC.
When I open the table in Access it seems to be read only???

How to solve this?

Or can I reach this table from access VBA directly without ODBC linked tables?

I need to iterate the records in that table and delete them if they are processed.
