I did not see these in the earlier messages, but I may have missed so
forgive me and ignore this message if so...

Do you have "Recognise Unique Indexes" checked in the ODBC driver?
Do you have the MS Access key icon next to the primary key in the design
view of the table? You can look at the design view even though Access gives
message saying you can't change it (resonably enough)
When you link the table do you get a pop-up asking you to nominate a unique
column? If you do it means that Access has not found the key.

Also, by the way, if you make any changes to the table design on the
backend, you need to delete the table link in Access and relink it.  I don't
thing the link-refeshing add-in refeshes well enough. Not doing this can
give rise to confusing problem-solving sessions.

Still no luck.  I tried making all fields non null and supplying a default
value and still get the same error message.
