Hi,

General high level question. (Must have arisen before).

I have simple table for "Supplier Details".
The data is UniqueSupplierCode, Name, Address, Email etc.

I want a SINGLE form which will allow me to Add new suppliers and modify existing ones.
How can I prevent the user from amending the UniqueSupplierCode once it has been set up.
They can obviously amend the name and address details etc.

I do not want to use autonumbering.

You can toggle the control to allow edits based on the NewRecord value. You'd do this in the Current event of the form:

Sub Form_Current()
  Me.YourControl.Enabled = Me.NewRecord
  Me.YourControl.Locked = Not Me.NewRecord
End Sub

This will Enable and Unlock your control when the form is in the "NewRecord" mode only.

oops, I thought I had closed this query and have since raise another query that relates to this one.

...The solution is not as perfect as I thought !

I need to be able to filter and sort on the data that is disable by this code;

 Me.YourControl.Locked = Not Me.NewRecord


Anhy easy way to do this??

Whether the box is locked or enabled would have no impact on the Filtering, unless you're referring to the rightclick filter.

yes , I am referring to the right click filter.

What is the best (simplest) way to get a filter on this field??
Can I re-activate my right click one??

YOu can try Enabling the control and Locking it. Enabling it should allow you to interact with it, but keeping the Lock in place should stop people from updating it.
