    How can i make a variable textbox unchangeable? I have some text boxes that have subtotals that are determined by previous entry selections.  Currently on my form, the customer can change those boxes manually which effect the overall total. How do I lockout those boxes?

    if you'll only modify 1 textbox, follow the steps in fig. 1.

    if you'll modify multiple fields, follow fig. 2.

    * Ctrl + left click individual fields that you want to make as read only. (else, select all)

    hope this helps.
