I want youe help in the following case:
I'm working in Ms Access 2000 to link tables to external text files.
I do that by the link table wizard,but Access don't let me to update the table.Access reply that the table is read only.
please give me effective
Due to the fact that text files aren't random access, they aren't considered updatable. The only way this could happen would be if the replacement was exactly the same length as what it replaced (allowing an in-place change), or if Access completely rewrote the text file (which could be massively time consuming).
One option that you might consider is breaking the text file up into pieces and storing those pieces in an Access table.
