Access Table Problem : Can't Read Records

I was provided an Access (the last version that worked with Win3.1) file.
After creating an alias pointing to the file, and dropping the appropriate
components onto my form, I received the following error message when I tried
to set the TTable's Active property to true:

"General SQL error.
Record(s) can't be read; no Read Data permission on 'TOurClients' table."

I'm using Delphi 3.02 under Win95.

Any help is appreciated.
