I have a query that I used to pull info from two tables.  The query is a simple query and I can edit the query once I run it.  The problems happens when I try to pull the info from the qery into a form.  I am unable to do any data entry??  I am not sure what I am doing wrong.  Help

In the form design, goto the properties, and choose the data tab. In the Recordset type choose dataset (Inconsistent Updates)

Make sure you are using the correct query as the form's RecordSource.

The recordsetType should be Dynaset although in some rare cases you might need to use - Dynaset (Inconsistent Updates).  Snapshot recordsets are NOT updateable.

Check the "Allow" properties on the Data tab of the form's Property Sheet to make sure that you have allowed edits.
