Locking Fields

After all this work on the fields you’ve created, you don’t want a coworker or user to be able to change the fields on the fly. You can lock a field to protect it. To do this, select the field and then press Ctrl+F11. This will keep the field from being modified. If you want to unlock a field, select it and then press Ctrl+Shift+F11. This returns the field to its normal, modifiable state.

If you want to protect an entire form, and not simply lock a field or two, you can use the Forms toolbar’s Protect Form button to guard a form against further modification. For more information on protecting a form, see “Protecting Forms” on page 882.
