cannot update field using recordsetclone

I have a docmd.runsql statement that works(but has to do the whole set of records) so i have gone for a recordset clone approach as that seq field can be sequenced once the recordset has been filtered down.

however it says error 3027 database or object is read only. not sure why it works one way and not the other.

help would be appreciated.

Private Sub BtnAddSeqFields_Click()
Dim db As Database
Dim rst As Recordset


If MsgBox("processor heavy operation you may lose your mouse while running, you have option of filtering down and just resequence those records of interest proceed?", vbYesNo) = 6 Then
'DoCmd.RunSQL ("UPDATE TblExporthVinstems SET TblExporthVinstems.Seq = Right(OnlyAlphaNum([vin_original_dvla]),Val([Forms]![FrmExportVinCode].[LblExportSeqCount].[caption]));")
'

'alternative method to update seq field using only recordsetclone
Set rst = Me.RecordsetClone
With rst
.MoveFirst
Do While Not .EOF
.Edit (fails here)
!Seq = Right(OnlyAlphaNum([VIN_Original_DVLA]), Val([Forms]![FrmExportVinCode].[LblExportSeqCount].[Caption]))
.Update
.MoveNext
Loop
End With




Me.Requery

End If

End Sub

Can you update records through the form?

What is the recordsource for the form?

What filter have you applied and how did you do that?

Just to be safe, change :
Dim rst As Recordset
to
Dim rst As DAO.Recordset

I've never used the RecordsetClone to actually update data, only to move around in the records and have that reflected in the form. If you must update data, try either using the Recordset, of the form, or do it independently of the form and then requery/refresh the form.

My guess is that the forms recordset is not directly updateable.  In the RunSQL statement you are updating a table, but in the recordsetclone you are updating the forms recordsource, which may be a read-only query.
