access2002 app under office2007 on windows7

Discussion in 'Access Conversion' started by LaurieTuff via, Dec 1, 2009.

  1. I have copied an access2002 app to a windows7 OS, running Ofice2007

    Superficially all looks well but when I try to make any data
    changes/additions etc. I get the message,
    ' This Recordset is not updateable'

    Can anyone help me out here?

  2. While it might sound like a facetious question, where did you put the
    database when you copied it? Windows 7 has much stricter security than other
    versions of Windows, and there are folders where you cannot put your own

  3. Thanks for the response Douglas. I moved my data to another folder and all
    was well.

    Next question! What are the rules regarding data placement and where do I
    find them?

    Regards, Laurie

  4. To answer my own question (for anyone else with this issue) the macro
    security settings in Win7 allow a user to set any folder as 'safe' thereby
    improving on the options in previous OSs
