    How to prevent modification to existing records

    user24094

      Hello,

       

      I am new to FileMaker and I have a newbie question.

       

      I have a table where I want the users to be able to ADD new records but they are not to be able to MODIFY any existing records. I would like to be able to completely prevent them from navigating to existing records (via next/previous buttons or CTRL-UP/DOWN) if possible. If that is not possible, then can I protect the fields from the table on the layout so that they are input capable when adding a new record and output only (with a visibly different style) on any other mode?

       

      Any advice that you can provide would be of great help.

       

      Thank you.

      David Morris.
