Can you override auto enter/non modifiable fields?

Hi all. I'm just starting up with FileMaker and have probably made a typical new user error. I created a customer ID field which was set up to be auto-enter, non-modifiable. When I imported the data I switched off this feature as I wanted to keep the old customer IDs for existing records. However, I cannot do anything now!! A dialogue box tells me "Contact ID” is defined to require a value. You must enter a value." but it won't let me enter a value manually, it won't let me move to another record, I can't get into layout mode to edit the field,I can't open Manage Database, I can't close the database, and I wanted to make a clone of this DB and start again and can't do that either. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Many thanks. T
