I want to open and edit layers from a personal geodatabase in QGIS. I have read this post and I follow the ODBC way to open a personal geodatabase in QGIS with success.

However, I cant edit layers in QGIS.

enter image description here

The editing toolbar is grayed out.

Can I edit the layer from a personal geodatabase in QGIS? Is it possible ?

  • Can you just export layers to a preferred format, then edit?
