Hi. Simple question.

Can you lockout some columns in a table or do you have tocreate a form or something else.
I have a table where the information is put there by a query and I only want two fields to be updated. The other fields are not to be touched.

You can only do this in a form.

Another possibility is to write a query that has only those two fields, then expose the query to the user for whatever manipulation they need to do.

peter is correct in that tables don't have 'column-lock' abilities.

Yes,

Use the form wizard to make the form
set the Form to be ("Datasheet") to make it look like a query.

Set the Locked property of the control
You can also set the "enabled" property of the control to: No
...so that they cannot even click into the field/control...

Then adjust your query to update these two fields only.
