You need to be able to open the file with a full access password so that you can enter layout mode. The constraint may be set in Manage | Security as that is also a way to disallow edits on a given record or table.
You also won't be able to enter layout mode if this is a Runtime solution.
I'm new to Filemaker Pro, so please bear with me.
It doesn't ask me for a password when I open it, nor do I see a way to enter admin mode.
I'm opening the file with FP 11 development.
How do I know if it is a runtime solution, and if it is, how do I open it with the full version?
Your file may enter a password for you when you open the file. If you hold down the shift key (windows) or Option key ( Mac) while the file opens. This File Option can be disabled and the system will ask you for a password.
To see if it's a runtime solution, see what "about" info is available when you pull down the help menu.
Thanks, I'm able to go to Layout Mode.
I checked Manage Security and the login I used has full access.
When I try to enter something into the field it give me a this field is not modifiable message.
Then I get the option to revert the record.
These are the only two fields in the table that I can't edit.
One field is a radio button, the other is a pull down list.
I've also used different layouts, but they don't allow me to edit either.
How do I get it to let me edit these fields?
Look up the fields in Manage | Database | Fields
Either they are fields of type calculation or the "Prohibit modification" field option was selected for them.
