    Hi,

    I am stuck with my personal project in Access 2007. Basically I am trying to construct a database for my DVD's based one movies titles and actors. I made three tables, actors, movie info, and a third table to resolve the many to many relationships. Then I made a form with the actor names and a subform for the movies titles that actor is involved in. The form's purpose is to add movies to an existing actor...easy enough.

    My problem is when I try to add a movie, I get the message "Field cannot be updated". Very frustrating! I read some posts on this site regarding similar issues but it didn't help me in this case. It's probably something really obvious which I am missing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Jay
