    Read Only Backups (2000/2002)

    When my assistant backs up an Access 2000 database and gives it to me, (Access 2002) it is in Read Only form and cannot be opened.
    The error message deals with something like "earlier version is read only".
    Question is how can she back up the database information and give it to me on a dvd or cd in a form I can open, modify, save, and return.

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    Files on a CD-ROM (or DVD-ROM) are almost always read-only, and will retain that status when copied back to a hard disk or network drive. To change the status, right-click the file, select properties, clear the Read-Only check box and click OK.
