"Field not modifiable"?

Hi FM Experts!


I'm fairly new to FileMaker and have been working away at it on my own but I've run into a problem that I cannot seem to fix. Was hoping that this forum might help me? I'm sure it is rather rudimentary, but for the life of me I can't figure it out!


I have a field that looks up values from another field. ("Full Name", from the layout of "Contacts") It's displayed as a drop down list. The list is displayed but when I go to click on one of the names to enter it into the field, I get an error message:


"This action cannot be performed because this field is not modifiable."

How can I fix this?


Sure wish FileMaker had come with a manual! It's taken a lot of hours to figure it out on my own I have to say.
