InfoPath 2007 Fields on Read Only View

Newbie Question,

I created a view that contains several previously filled in fields.
I want to make all of the fields read only except two new fields.
I noticed that I can right click each field and check a read only box for text fields but i do not see that functionality for some other field types like date fields.

I guess I could drag a text field onto the form and give it a value but i notice that when i do that it creates a "field" in the my datasource which seems redundant to me.
Any advice?

You can convert your fields to expression fields on this view.  This displays the data without allowing any option for entry.  Just right click on the control and use the change control menu to select expression box.

FYI, if you select controls from the menu IP will auto generate a field in your datasource.  If you drag an existing field from your datasource then it will be bound to the field you selected.  Best practice is to add fields to your data source and then drag them onto your view I believe.  That way you do not have to delete all those autogen fields.
