    Unhappy Access DB opens in read-only mode

    From time to time my databases will open in read-only mode which is very annoying. How can I prevent them from doing that?

    I can think of a few situations where your database is opened read only
    1. Your default setting is such.
    2. The database is in a folder which is read only (or a CD) or the folder cannot create the lock file *.ldb or *.laccdb
    3. Someone else has opened it exclusively.

    This list may not be exhaustive.

    What media is your database stored on? This behaviour happens if your database is copied to a CD or DVD
