Operation must use an updateable query

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Operation must use an updateable query.
This error usually happens when you try to insert data into or update data in an Access database. It means that you don't have sufficient permissions to write to the database.

If you are running the web server yourself then read the FAQ, Checking and Setting up the Correct Permissions on the Server.

If you are not running the server yourself you will need to contact your web space provider and ask them how to sort the problem out. You may need to use a special folder or they may have to setup a system DSN for you or change the permissions on the directory containing the database.
