Quick Tip:

Preventing Access to Fields
FileMaker Pro has a feature in the Inspector under the Data tab that allows you to prevent entry into a field. However, scripts can still enter a protected field. Just use the Go to Field or any other script step that places the cursor in a field to allow users into a field only when you want them. By the way, attaching a Go to Field step directly to a button will not override the Inspector settings. A script from Manage Scripts is required.
