I need to edit and add into a field that is not allowing me access, being "non-modifiable"..

Post

I need to update key names (Example: "inventor names") on FileMakerPro 10 and it's "non-modifiable".  (The person who used to work on this program left the company and nobody here knows how to use it. )

Problem: I need to edit and add into a field that is not allowing me access, being "non-modifiable"..

Question:  How do I make this field modifiable?

1.   is it because the names (inventor names) are being pulled from another source; perhaps, an "employee list" ? Is that why I cannot fill out the fields with the Last name, First name, etc.?

2. where do I look for this "source" in order to add new employee's (inventors). (I looked on all the other drives I have on my system, and didn't find any kind of employee or name list.)

Thanks,

MK
