privilege sets



     I'm new to filemaker and I'm having some issues with custom privilege sets.  I've created a database to track my company's inventory & I want to make a privilege set called Account executives that allows them to modify some fields but not others.  I'd like them to be able to modify the fields I've named: notes, qty req, date due, date out, etc.  I don't want them to be able to change things by mistake like location, qty on hand, dimensions, brand, etc..

     The problem I'm having is:

     i've set the privilege set "account executive" to have custom field privileges, all modifieable: date out, date due, notes, qty req etc.  Problem is when I log into an account I've assigned these privilges to, I get an error msg that says "this action cannot be performed because this field is not modifiable"  but....when I go in to manage security, I have these fields set as modifiable.  What am I doing wrong?

     Thanks for the help,
