Could not delete from specified tables. (Error 3086)

You tried to delete data from one or more tables, but the deletion could not be completed.

Possible causes:

  • You do not have permission to modify the table. To change your permissions assignments, see your system administrator or the table's creator.

  • The database was opened for read-only access. The database is read-only for one of these reasons:

    • You used the OpenDatabase method and opened the database for read-only access.
    • The database file is defined as read-only in the database server operating system or by your network.
    • In a network environment, you do not have write privileges for the database file.
    • In Microsoft Visual Basic, you used the Data control and set the ReadOnly property to True.

To delete the data, close the database, resolve the read-only condition, and then reopen the file for read/write access.
