error 3027 database or object is read-only

error 3027 database or object is read-only

error 3027 database or object is read-only

(OP)
I copied a database from a colleague and got the above 3027 message. I edited its properties and unchecked (I can't quite remember) a box about "from another machine" - and unblocked it. It is NOT read-only

I cannot overcome this and now an older copy that I created is also giving the same problem whenever I try to create a table

Do I need to re-install Access (2013)?

RE: error 3027 database or object is read-only

Is the file in a trusted location (Trust Center Settings)?
Is it only the files that were copied or is there an issue with new files too?

RE: error 3027 database or object is read-only

Can you create and delete a text file in the same directory?

(OP)
sxschech - trusted location - yes -there are other files in that location (incl. access databasbes) which work without a problem
just that file - I have created a new database and imported everything and that is fine - although I can't import the categories?

dhookom - yes

RE: error 3027 database or object is read-only

What do you mean by "although I can't import the categories"? Is that a table or form or something else? There might be some corruption.
