I assume by "edit the fields", you mean you want to update the Data on the form?

Your settings should allow you to Edit existing records, but not Add or Delete records.

If you cannot edit any records, then something else is causing your trouble. Is your form based on a Query? If so, is that query updateable - that is, can you open the query directly and edit records there? If you cannot, then your form won't be editable either. Common causes of non-editable queries include invalid Joins and use of aggregate/GroupBy functions.

It's just a master detail form, it doesn't run on a query, the master form has a combobox where the user selects the record number to view. the detail displays the record using the shared field id.
