Problem with replacing field contents
For some reason, I'm unable to replace the field contents in the rightmost (::AuthorID) field in this layout (please see screenshot.) Any ideas as to why this may be happening?
The leading :: indicate that this is a field from a related table. It would be much safer to do this action on a layout based on the table occurrence from which AuthorID was selected to add it to this layout. The fields that are empty here may be due to there not being any related record linked to the record in that row of your table view.
Does it not give you a message when you try and fail to edit it?
