How do I update a shared Access 2010 database in OneDrive if I don't own the file ?
Posted on 2015-01-21
I have shared access to a Microsoft Access 2010 database in OneDrive. The file is owned by another OneDrive user who has given me edit permissions on this file.
When I go into OneDrive I can open the database but it displays the message 'This database is opened read-only. You can only change in linked tables. To make design changes, save a copy of the database.'
If I take a copy of the database as instructed I can amend the database but I can't upload it to the owner's OneDrive.
How can I get around this problem and edit the database 'in situ' as I'm able to with Excel or Word documents ?
