The OpenRecordset Method Help Topic in Microsoft Access 97 states the following for the Options parameter:

   options  Optional. A combination of constants that specify

However, in an ODBCDirect workspace, you cannot use the Options parameter. You must supply a zero (0) for the argument. If you attempt to create syntax that supplies the option, or you omit the zero, as in the following syntax

you receive the following error message:

Run-time Error "3027:
Can't update. Database or object is read-only.
