Fix the This Recordset is Not Updateable Error
In this video I'm going to explain a few reasons why you might get the "this Recordset is not updateable" or "operation must use an updateable query" error message, and show you some solutions.
Ernesto from Arlington, Texas (a Platinum Member) asks: I wanted to add a StateT table to my database so that I could have the state abbreviation and the full state's name. This way in my forms and reports I could show the full state name even though only the abbreviation is entered into my CustomerT table. Once I do that and make the join, however, I get the error message that "this Recordset is not updateable" and I can't change anything in the form or the query. What did I do wrong?
We will discuss a total of 18 different ways in which your recordsets might not be updateable. See the full checklist below!
