Can data-entry text fields be used on subforms or are they only for computed fields?

I have a form with several subforms.  The subforms have fields with a computed value from fields on the form.  The subforms also need to have text and listbox fields.  Is this possible?  If so, how do I set the fields up so that text can be entered into them?

The computed fields are displaying properly on the subform.  However, the text and listbox fields display a blinking cursor, but do not allow me to enter text.  I have the text and listbox fields in the subform set to be editable.

Again, I'm in a hurry to get this resolved.  Lots of points if you can help me!!

Nevermind... I figured it out.... had to update my pop-up formula to allow updates.

My formula was:  
@DialogBox("form" ; [AutoHorzFit] : [AutoVertFit] : [NoCancel] : [NoNewFields] : [NoFieldUpdate] : [ReadOnly] : [SizeToTable] : [NoOkCancel] : [OkCancelAtBottom] ; "title" )

And is now:  
@DialogBox("form" ; [AutoHorzFit] : [AutoVertFit] : [NoCancel] : [NoNewFields] : [SizeToTable] : [NoOkCancel] : [OkCancelAtBottom] ; "title" )

I'll post to a moderator to have this question closed.

Thanks!
