Querying exception error: Must use an updateable query.


I initially built some asp.net (vb.net) applications for querying Access databases and doing record related actions and I had them all working using the WebMatrix server on my PC.
Now, I am using IIS to make the services available over a broder arena (Intranet for now), and I am getting an error message when I attempt to perform action queries (select queries are working just fine.
The error I am getting is:
Exception Details: System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: Operation must use an updateable query.
Source Error:
Line 292:
Line 293: txtDate.text = strSQL
Line 294: objCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()
Here is the relevant code:

Sub btnUpdate_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
' IF user clicks to enter a Accomodation but enters no new value then default to "No accomodation entered" status
if strcomp(txtAccomodationsDescription.text,"Write Description Here") = 0 then
txtDisabilityAccomodations.text = "False"
end if
Dim myconnection As New oledbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;data source=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Career_Start\Career_Start.mdb")

dim strSQL as string = "UPDATE Quarterly_Employer_Table2 SET Industry_of_Employment ='" & txtIndustry.text & _
"',Employer_Name = '" & txtEmployerName.text & "', Accomodations='" & txtDisabilityAccomodations.text & _
"', Accomodations_Description='" & txtAccomodationsDescription.text & "' WHERE Participant_ID = '" & txtParticipantID.text & "' AND Project_Site ='" & txtPrjSiteCode.text & "'"

Dim objCommand as OleDbCommand
objCommand = New OleDbCommand(strSQL, myconnection)

End Sub

Any suggestions on this is most appreciated.

You need to give the account '<machinename>\ASPNET' write privileges to the folder and the Access database.

Might I please inquire as to how I would do that?

The pinned post and followups at the top of this forum have all this information and more - - -

In Windows 2K:
(Go into Accessories/Computer Management/Local Users & Groups/users You will see that there's an ASPNet user. )
Right click on the directory where your database is - choose properties - Then the security tab - then click on permissions.
Add the ASPNet user to the shared section
Then, make sure it has 'Change' rights -
Click Apply and you should be working fine then.

"You need to give the account '<machinename>\ASPNET' write privileges to the folder and the Access database."

I am not sure how to give specific permissions to the folder where the Access database resides.
I right clicked on the folder and chose properties, and all permissions seem to exist in there.
I did similar actions in the IIS manager, but found no way to set permissions for asp.net.
Am I way off base on this?

Operation must use an updateable query error when using Access db
I am developing an ASP .NET application at work (Windows 2000 Pro, Access 2000) and have been taking a copy of it home to test. When I run the application at home (Windows XP Pro, Access XP) I can log into the app and display DataGrids, which means I can read data in tables. If I try to update data in a table I get a "Operation must use an updateable query" error. As far as I know, the IIS is configured the same on the two machines. The only differences are the operating systems and the version of MS Access. Any suggestions would be appreciated.Regards, Jim Bonacorda Train H...
