Migration to Firebird is optional and it seems this default will be changed back to HSQLDB in near future unless
Enable Experimental Features in
Options is turned on.
As for your statement:
I don’t know what information you need.
you never stated, until the comment, what proceeded the error (conversion to Firebird) nor the database being used.
Still have no clue what is meant by:
It would not save and now everything is greyed out.
All of BASE? Form? What? Very confusing.
My comment mentions a problem with the primary key. It may be during the conversion the auto increment (you don’t mention anything on this either; more guessing) was not set properly. You can set this with an SQL statement.
Make a backup of your .odb in case of problems created. Get the largest current value of the key. Can get by running query:
Select MAX("Recipe ID") from "Recipe Table"
Then, using that value, from menu on main screen of .odb,
alter table "Recipe Table" alter "Recipe ID" restart with NNNN;
where NNNN is the value of the highest primary key obtained.
Test inserting a new record.
