By default recordsets are opened read only.

To make it editable use this:

Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(sSQL, dbOpenDynaset, 0, dbOptimistic)

Whenever you update a record in a DAO recordset, you need to use the Edit and Update recordset methods like so:

rs.Edit
rs.Fields(10).Value = hideFlag
rs.Update

Open in new window
