Hi All,

I have a field on an access database, JobNo. I have locked this field in the form to prevent it being changed, however, I want users to be able to search for records with this field. How do I achieve this as I cant once it is locked.

Do you mean Disabled ... or Locked ?  Locked allows your to click into the field and search, sort, etc.

Be sure you don't have Enabled set to No ... instead Enabled = Yes, Locked = Yes.
