I can’t use “Inspector” to format a field in the “Edit Layout” mode. That is their process. At the “Data” tab there should be a field formatting function radio indent box that allow a user to format the field for currency, calendar etc. The field is inactive (gray) and cannot be activated. There is a lock/unlock function that is also inactive. There should be options in the boxes below the formatting radio boxes but on my copy of the software “no options available” words are displayed.
Followed your manual
I need to at least format field.
What data type is the field?
There are no data formatting options for a field of type text.
Changing the field's type to number or date will enable you to select different data formatting options such as currency or a pop up calendar--though these two options are in different sections of the Inspector.
