"This form cannot be used to update a record"

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f2253caff68>

Hi all
I have a single table with a browse form and an update form. I used the ABC Application Wizard to create the application. On the “Main” form I update the table data by inserting a new record every 5 minutes, followed by an update of the record a few minutes later. This is done using the Timer event

When I open the browse form I can see all the data, and the View button works correctly. If I right-click on a record I can use the delete option on the pop-up menu to delete a record. But I get an error message when I try to change the record.

Did I break something? How do I fix it? All suggestions would be most welcome.

Thanks in advance

On the Form under Actions … There are check boxes to allow Add Change Delete. You must have Change unchecked
