    Help: Cannot close file



      Help: Cannot close file


      I am new to FlieMaker Pro 10. I am running it on MacOSX Snow Leopard.

      I created a simple database and one of the fields is a "Creation Field" date. I setup the field to require a value. However my mistake in another window (don't remember where and cannot check since I'm stuck) I also set that the same field cannot be modified.

      The result is that when I try to close the file, move to another record or do anything else (liek quitting FM) I get the error message: "Creation Date" is defined to require a value. You must enter a value".

      When I try to type in the date I get the error message: "This action cannot be performed because this field is not modifiable".

      Now I'm stuck. 

      How do I resolve this?
