Access Form: Make fields uneditable

BBlu asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-28
I have a subform that shows records in datasheet view.  I'd like to be able to tab to the next record without having to go through each field in the records first.  I'd still like the fields to show, but only one of the fields to be editable or able to be selected (tabbed through).  Can anyone tell me how to accomplish this?
