Error: Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80004005' Could not delete from specified tables.

Error:
Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80004005'
Could not delete from specified tables.
 
 
Solution:
This error usually happens when you try to add/update/delete data from the Access database. It means that you don't have sufficient permissions to write to the database. If you are running the web server yourself , you need to setup read/write permissions on the /databases folder on the server. If you are using a web hosting service you will need to contact your provider for instructions. They need to change the permissions on the /databases folder or in some cases setup a system DSN for you.
