Cannot modify read only data set?

Description : Probate Plus shows error message such as "cannot modify a read only data set."

Resolution : Ensure that user has read/write/full-control rights to the Probate Plus database folder. If user only has read permissions the error will occur when Probate Plus tries to write or create files in the database folder. To locate the database folder, see "Help..About" in Probate Plus menu. If folder access is through a mapped drive, check that the drive mapping has been created with permissions that are valid on the host of the data folder. An alternative is to use a UNC path rather than a mapped drive for the data folder.
