recordset not updateable with Access query to linked Sql Server table

I'm getting the error "Recordset not updateable"

dbo_Part_Serial_Number is a Sql Server table

My query in Access:
SELECT dbo_Part_Serial_Number.ID, dbo_Part_Serial_Number.Part_No, dbo_Part_Serial_Number.Serial_No, dbo_Part_Serial_Number.Label_Date, dbo_Part_Serial_Number.PCBoard_Lot_No1, dbo_Part_Serial_Number.PCBoard_Lot_No2, dbo_Part_Serial_Number.PCBoard_Lot_No3, dbo_Part_Serial_Number.PCBoard_Lot_No4, dbo_Part_Serial_Number.PCBoard_Lot_No5, dbo_Part_Serial_Number.Transformer_Lot_No1, dbo_Part_Serial_Number.Transformer_Lot_No2, dbo_Part_Serial_Number.Transformer_Lot_No3, dbo_Part_Serial_Number.Transformer_Lot_No4, dbo_Part_Serial_Number.Multiplier_Lot_No1
FROM dbo_Part_Serial_Number
WHERE (((Left([Part_No],1))="P"))
ORDER BY dbo_Part_Serial_Number.Label_Date DESC;

Teach me more experts!
Thanks,
Brooks

does the table has a primary key?
it needs to have one for access to be able to update

Patrick MatthewsCommented:
Expanding on momi_sabag's comment, when you linked the SQL Server table to Access, the Access linked table wizard would have asked you what the primary key is for that table.  If you do not supply that, then Access will not be able to write updates to the SQL Server table.

It did not.  Added primary key to original Access table and re 'upsized' to sql server.  All good now.  Thank you!
