How to Change the Read-Only Attribute of StarSQL

Last Update: 26 June 2008
Product: StarSQL
Version: 5.x
Article ID: SQV00SQ031


StarSQL data sources can be configured to be "read-only" which prevents the user from updating the database.

Update attempts will return the following error message:

[StarSQL][StarSQL ODBC Driver]This version only allows Read-Only access to relational data.


To configure a StarSQL data source to be "Read-Only", set the ReadOnly parameter in the data source configuration to "Yes". This parameter can be found on the Expert Page of the StarSQL data source setup wizard.
