FOXPRO 2.6 - CANNOT WRITE TO A DATABASE

(OP)
I am getting the following error message "cannot write to read-only file" whenever I try to do a GATHER MEMVAR MEMO.  Kindly inform me what is causing this.  Thank you.

RE: FOXPRO 2.6 - CANNOT WRITE TO A DATABASE

First guess:  your currently selected work area contains a cursor created with a SELECT statement.

If you are not trying to write to a temp file or cursor,
 
Where is the file you are trying to write to
Local HD,
Network Drive,
CD-Rom ???

Look at the file attributes of the *.FPT , DBF and CDX file you are trying to write to.  Make sure the r (Read-Only) flag is not on.
