I have approx 10 fields that I do not want to be edited via the WebShared version of Filemaker Pro.

How can I set just these 10 Fields to be locked, while allowing the remaining 5 fields to be edited?
The editing part works fine :)

Thanks

Create a privilege set for the web user
then set the "Records" privilege to "Custom"
Then select the table and select "Field Access" as "Limited"
The select the fields you do not want them to be able to enter

Is that what you are looking for?
