It seems that you cannot change a MSAccess field to required in Edit Table - actually none of the checkmarks "take" when you click in the check box. I was told this is a bug.

I use MS_Access 2000 and have no problems with it.
The 'required' data is set in the Field Properties of the Access table.

Thanks Ugain.

I was very new to the program and was changing the "required" field in Dataset Editor in the dbQwiksite program - I subsequently worked out that I had to make the changes in Access. It seemed that since I could change it in dataset editor (it would let me checkmark the field), that it should therefore change the attribute in the dbQwiksite program, at least for that group - of course that is not the case. So I guess my only other thought about it, is why can I checkmark the required field if it isn't really editable? Don't mean that as criticism, just not intuitive to us really newbie people.
