    Mystery Read-only (2000 SR1)

    I have a simple form and sub-form. When I try to add a record, in the sub-form, I get an error: "This property is read-only and can't be set."

    The sub-form can add a record all by itself (when not in the main form) and the query can too. The sub-form is properly linked to the main form (Parent-Child on common field). I just can't figure out what could be read-only (I've examined every property on every object, field, etc.).

    Please help... Thanks,

    One thing you might check on is whether you have indexes on both the table that drives the main form and the one the sub-form is trying to insert into. In general the field that you are using to link subform records to the main table should be indexed, and both tables should have a primary key. Other than that, we will probably need more details.
