ODBC insert requires --writeMode

Hi,

I’m using Windows ODBC and my database is in Atlas. To read I have no problem, but to add it shows

[MySQL][ODBC 1.0(w) Driver][mysqld-5.7.12 mongosqld v2.14.0]insert requires --writeMode

Anyone facing this problem and how to overcome this?

Hi @Alfirus_Ahmad,

I believe you are using the BI connector to read the data. Please note that bi connector is read only by definition.

You cannot use it for writes. Use any of our language native drivers to use CRUD.
