    Read/Write Access DB from VBA in Excel

    The code below is a portion of a sample I found online. It reads the database table and puts in excel. The problem is that I
    cannot write to the database. When I try to add rst1.Fields(0) = "Bob" I get an error 3251. What do I need to do to be able to write to this DB?

    Sub Import_AccessData()
    Dim cnt As ADODB.Connection
    Dim rst1 As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim stDB As String, stSQL1 As String
    Dim stConn As String
    Dim wbBook As Workbook
    Dim wsSheet1 As Worksheet
    Dim lnField As Long, lnCount As Long

    'Instantiate the ADO-objects.
    Set cnt = New ADODB.Connection
    Set rst1 = New ADODB.Recordset

    Set wbBook = ThisWorkbook
    Set wsSheet1 = wbBook.Worksheets(1)

    'Path to the database.
    stDB = "c:\db1.mdb"

    'Create the connectionstring.
    stConn = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" _
    & "Data Source=" & stDB & ";"

    'The 1st raw SQL-statement to be executed.
    stSQL1 = "SELECT * FROM table1"

    'Clear the worksheet.

    With cnt
    .Open (stConn) 'Open the connection.
    .CursorLocation = adUseClient 'Necessary to disconnect the recordset.
    End With

    With rst1
    .Open stSQL1, cnt 'Create the recordset.
    Set .ActiveConnection = Nothing 'Disconnect the recordset.
    End With

    With wsSheet1
    .Cells(2, 1).CopyFromRecordset rst1 'Copy the 1st recordset.
    End With

    rst1.Fields(0) = "Bob"

    'Release objects from the memory.
    Set rst1 = Nothing
    Set cnt = Nothing
    End Sub
