    Hi

    I have locked and disabled text boxes on a form to stop meddling but now I find I can't search on these fields, any suggestions please.

    Novice User Thanks

    I you need to search or filter on a control on a form, then the user must be able to put the focus on that control, so you can't disable it. You can however leave it locked so the contents cannot be changed. Hpe this helps.
