In a shared database, I started a New Generation of a database. While it was offline, I ran a procedure that grouped records, which created summary records. When I tried to use the statement removeallsummaries (from the menubar), I got an error message that “RemoveSummaries statement failed because database is read only.”
I was not expecting that and thought I could do whatever liked while offline and then upload my revised database. The same error occurs if I try to execute a removeallsummaries statement in a procedure. I also cannot just delete the summaries.
Now when I try to upload the new generation, I get the exact same error message (as I recall uploading a new generation first removes summary records).
Now I am stuck with these records and cannot upload the database or remove the summary records.
From the NewGeneration Window, I chose Revert to Server. The changes I have made for the most part are lost, but it looks like the field I added while offline is present [NOTE: the field was not there.]
Hopefully, TimeMachine will come to the rescue.
