Hi everyone,

I hope you can help me regarding the below. It is the first time I encounter this issue.

When trying to load a new termbase in MultiTerm, I receive the following error message:

The operation must be an updatable query.

Now, everything is fine with my MT 7, the file I am trying to load is a valid mbd file and my settings are properly defined.

Would someone have encountered the same issue before?

Thank you all for your help,

Any news? Oct 9, 2008

Today I have found the same error and this is the only question posted about this matter.
Did you by any chance find a solution?
I have been searching the Web, but I had no luck at all.
Thank you!

Do you have any projects open in Multiterm? Oct 9, 2008

Or are you trying to open a single termbase?
Try to reregister Multiterm (execute this file C:\Programme\SDL International\MultiTerm 2007\#_SelfRegister_Desktop.bat), this might help.
