I'm using
   DataSource1.DataSet.Edit;
to set my fields to editable.

A situation has come up where I would like to set a specific field in my table to editable and none of the other ones is this possible and how do I do it?  

So something like
DataSource1.DataField('Fieldname').Edit

you can set "ReadOnly" to true on each field
so in your case, you could set them all to false except the one you want to edit

Hi
Try
procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var iCounter: integer;
    iEditColumn: integer;
begin
    iEditColumn:= 3; // any column to be edited
    for iCounter := 0 to (DBGrid1.Columns.Count-1) do
    begin
        if iCounter <> iEditColumn then DBGrid1.Columns[iCounter].ReadOnly:= true;
    end;
end;

or you can do it with enable and disable to component like DBEdit. Once it disable, the user cannot edit on that field.
Make disable/Enable depends on the criteria you need.
