Changing 'Browse Mode' capability of a field within a script

Post

Hello. Does anyone have an idea about a conditional format of a field that I'd like to perform where the 'Browse Mode' checkbox can be unchecked within a script, and thus making the field inaccessable during data input. My database example is explained below.

I have 'Products and Services' which fall into a selectable [Category Field] of either 'Product' or 'Service'.

When 'Product' is selected I wish for certain fields to become inaccessable by the user and vice-versa for 'Services'.

I'd prefer not to use tabs as I am attempting this to get it away from a tab setup that I currently have. I'm trying to minimise the number of fields I have in my table and reduce the over-all complexity. Please make suggestions if you have any.

Regards,

PD. (Im using FileMaker 11.0v4 on Mac OSX).
