Patch function doesn't work

I have a problem and i was searching a lot but i cant find a solution.

I have an SQL Table called "Orden_trabajo" with this columns.

--Date.--User--Equipment--Model

 

I'm trying to use the "Patch" function to create a register in a SQL database. but when i write this:

Patch('[dbo].[Orden_trabajo]'; Defaults('[dbo].[Orden_trabajo]'); {Date: Today() } )

 

The DataSource is underline, like this:  Patch('[dbo].[Orden_trabajo]'; Defaults('[dbo].[Orden_trabajo]'); {Date: Today() } )

and it says:

The data source is read-only, so the patch function cannot write to the

I dont know what i'm doing wrong or what is the problem here, because i have other table in othr application that works correct with that function.

There is a way that i could change the data source to not be read-only?

help, please

Several threads indicate this error can occur when the SQL table does not have a primary key.  Do you have a primary key for the table Orden_trabajo?  I can't see any obivious primary key based on your columns --Date.--User--Equipment--Model.  Let me know

The error message you are getting would suggest that the user you used as a connection account to the database in the SQL connector does not have Write access to the database.  Check the permissions in SQL to make sure you have write access for the connection account user.  I don't think your syntax is necessarily wrong its the permissions on the backend database.
