Welcome to the forum. Are you sure no one else is in the Access database at the same time? If you are sure please try rebooting and see if you can edit it then. It sounds like the database is locked for editing.

You say it gives an error - is there actually an error message (besides the dumb one that it wants to send to Microsoft, if you get that)?

Does Access close, or do you just lose the report?

Can you import a report from somewhere else, open it in design view, alter it and save it?

(I worked in access for many years. this was a first to me...)
