    I have a CD with Access databases on it that I MUST work on this weekend for school.The properties' box is in gray so I can't click on it to be able to change the data. It's bee a while since I had the class or used Access, so some good solid advice would be very much appreciated. As for being new to this group, I live in a small rural community in Missouri.

    A CD is read-only.

    Copy the data file FROM the CD to your local C Drive.

    Change the file properties from read-only to read-write.

    NOW, you'll be able to open the files & modify them...

    When you're done, burn a new CD with the updated databases on it.

    Welcome to the forum, Sue! You say:

    Do you mean that you're taking a class in Access, or that you teach and have an Access db that you need to work on for school as part of your job? Most of us are happy to help you in either case, but the manner in which we offer help may be different, depending on your answer.
    Hope this helps!

    The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!
