I wrote this code on the Action BC PreWriteRecord Function
The code is trying to update a date field on associated contacts to Activities

if ((this.GetFieldValue("Type") == "Meeting" && this.GetFieldValue("Status") == "Completed") || (this.GetFieldValue("Type") == "Outbound Call" && this.GetFieldValue("Status") == "Completed" && this.GetFieldValue("NYL Purpose") == "Sales Presentation"))
            //this.InvokeMethod("SetAdminMode", "TRUE");
            var bcContactAssoc = this.GetMVGBusComp("Contact Last Name");
            bcContactAssoc.ActivateField("Last Name");
            bcContactAssoc.ActivateField("NYL Rep Last Contacted Date");
            bcContactAssoc.InvokeMethod("SetAdminMode", "TRUE");
            bcContactAssoc.SetSearchSpec("Last Name", "*");
            var isContactRecord = bcContactAssoc.FirstRecord();
            while (isContactRecord)
                  if (bcContactAssoc.GetFieldValue("NYL Rep Last Contacted Date") == "")
                    bcContactAssoc.SetFieldValue("NYL Rep Last Contacted Date",this.GetFieldValue("Planned"));
                else if (bcContactAssoc.GetFieldValue("NYL Rep Last Contacted Date") < this.GetFieldValue("Planned"))
                    bcContactAssoc.SetFieldValue("NYL Rep Last Contacted Date",this.GetFieldValue("Planned"));
                isContactRecord = bcContactAssoc.NextRecord();
            bcContactAssoc = null;

Code works fine if the activity is owned by the person who is loged in. but if the activity is owned by a different person it throughs the error message. i m attaching the screen shot of the error message. In error message u will see the field name 'NYL Rep Last Contacted Date'. Thats the field we trying to updat on contact BC. this field is not read only on BC
I m also attaching the sif file for Action and Contact BC's
