Title

Drop down list with a locked field

Post

 I have a a database with 70 gas wells, and the information associated with them (location, total production, etc.).  In form view, I want to allow the user to select one of the gas wells from a drop down menu, but lock the user from adding any new wells or changing the name of the well they are viewing.

 

If I deselect browse mode under field entry in the data tab of the inspector in the edit layout screen, the drop down menu disappears all together.
