Error 3073 – Operation must contain an updatable query, 3086
I get an error ‘3073 Operation must contain an updatable query’ when I run this. Anyone have the same problem or have any ideas please? [Clive Jones 14-10-15]
I occasionally get this but just click end then re-run and it goes away…sometimes takes a couple of retries… [Leon Loberman 15-10- 15]
I occasionally get these types of error – for example I just got a 3073 and a 3086 on update 96 and I didn’t get an error on 97.
I normally go to debug and press F5 to continue on each error – I think it’s a timing issue related to how busy the machine is at the time….

When I run Update 97 I get a run-time error 3167 – Record is deleted. On running debug, it highlights a UPDoperatorhistory issue.
Can anyone help with this one please? [Kevin Moran]
see Leon’s reply above for Error 3073,3086
Error 3443 – Unrecognised Database Format – C:\DataAir\Dtset.mdb
Jon Saunders reported a problem on 6-12-15:
Running in the last few updates have been problematic for me…
Whilst trying to run update 199, I got a run time error (3443) “Unrecognised Database Format – C:\DataAir\Dtset.mdb” message come up with the following choices:- Cont/End/Debug/Help.
I clicked “End” & then ran in the update at the second attempt – worked fine, opened the DB, checked the counter, counter showed 199 – so OK.
Then ran in 200 – no problems encountered, opened the DB, checked the counter, counter showed 200 – so OK.
I’ve just run in 201 & I again got a run time error (3443) same message as before, hit “end”, run it in again, got a different run time error (which I can’t remember), hit “end” again, ran it in again & it worked at the 3rd time of asking.
Opened the DB & the counter is showing 201.
Just wondering if this is the beginning of problems with my DB? I’ve never had any previous problems running in updates before… Cheers,

Which Anti Virus software do you use ? I have Avast and I have to switch it off whilst running the updates in or I get various errors which mean it sometimes takes up to three attempts to run in an update. Maybe try doing that ? I only started getting this problem when I had to install Office 2013 on my PC.

I get this with some updates over the year and just run them again it seems to work fine.

Firstly, thanks to Stu & Steve for replying…
I also use Avast but before update 199 there was absolutely no issue with running updates at all.
I’m still using the same version of Office & also the same old version of Access (2002) that I always have. Maybe there’s been an automatic update in Avast which is causing the problem?
It’s interesting that there are fellow users experiencing this problem though. Thanks again, Jon
