Form is read only even though query behind it is editable

Why would my form be read only, even though I can edit the query that the form is based on? The form is a subform that is not linked to the master because it is populated based on what is selected in comboboxes on the main form. I fill the recordset of the subform programmatically based on what is selected. I can edit the query but cannot type into fields. The subform is enabled and not locked.
