    Can't enter number in number field used in calculation

    reink-dawg

      I have a simple data base (basically a checkbook) used for an organization's finances. In the summary layout I have a Number Field (beginning balance); a Summary Field (total revenue); another Summary Field (total expenses) and a Calculation Field (current balance).  The calculation is (beginning balance - total expense) + total revenue which gives the current balance.

       

      Both the beginning balance field and the current balance field were set up with Global storage.  I deleted all entries in both the total revenue and total expense records, so my current balance = starting balance.  I want to change the starting balance and I can't. No matter what I do, I have no access to the beginning balance field. Can anyone help?

       

      Thanks
