    Locked Text Box (2002 SP-2)

    What the . . .?
    I'm finally getting around to cleaning up my db a bit and have come across a form (which I'll probably be deleting) with several txtbxs that are locked. No big deal, except that the properties for these txtbxs (Enabled:Yes; Locked:No) are not what is locking the txtbx. I wasn't even aware of another way of locking a txtbx. Anyone have a clue how this was done? Curiosity getting the best of me.

    Is there anything in the Control Source property of these text boxes?

    Hmm. . .yeah, its a calculated field in the query the form is based on; the field does not exist in the table the query is based on.

    Calculated fields cannot be edited. A text box bound to a calculated field is always locked.

    Well, that of course makes all the sense in the world. I guess what really throws me here is that the field has a label of "Flat Rate". In the transportation industry that usually means a rate not based on mileage, weight, etc. In other words, a random fee (not calculated). That would seem to necessitate an entry. Go figure! Albeit another good reason for doing that house keeping I've been putting off for so long. Thanks for the input!
