Access Not Editing SharePoint Upload Images   Link

Hello! I split an Access Database where the back-end is a SharePoint List. The Access Front-end Form has a feature to locate a previously entered record and display the contents in the form. When I try to edit the contents of the form and then save / close, I receive the following message, Cannot update. Database or object is read-only.. What can I do to allow the SharePoint List to be updated?

After I click the OK Button, I get another error message, You cant save this record at this time. Program Strategy Form may have encountered an error while trying to save a record. If you close this object now, the data changes you made will be lost. Do you want to close the database object anyway?

I just click on the Yes Button to get out of that screen.

Can you edit it directly in the Table?

Yes, it can be edited directly on the List in SharePoint. I want users to edit on the form itself. That way users can do everything they need to do by using the Access Front-End.

But the Table you have linked in Access, can that be edited in Access?

When I attempt to edit the data directly on the Access Table, I receive the same error message.

Sounds like a permissions problem in SharePoint.

Are you logged into your Microsoft account in Access?

I'm logged into my Office 365 Account. Is this what you mean? The Access File itself doesn't require a password.

I've also tried testing it on a separate SharePoint Site; that is, it's separate from the SharePoint Site used by my team. I get the same results on using the test SharePoint and I have owner permission on that SharePoint.

Also, I can open the form and enter data to create a new record, which is then entered into the SharePoint List.

There is a feature in the SharePoint Menu for the list called "Edit in Grid View". While in SharePoint, the only way to edit a record is to click on "Edit in Grid View". I suspect SharePoint just doesn't allow edits of existing records unless you are on the SharePoint List itself. Or do you think otherwise?

No, you should definitely be allowed to edit the record from Access. This is one of the reasons I prefer SQL Server over SharePoint. Permissions can be a nightmare.
