I have a Transaction database created in Access 2003. We would like to install this in 60 different stores, however we have numbered these stores from S001 to S060. The idea is that when the database is opened the Store number will come automatically in the store number box. However the field must not be changed after the store number is entered. In other words what we would like to do is when the database is opened the VERY FIRST TIME it should ask for the STORE NUMBER and once the store number is entered we would like it to show up in the field STORE NUMBER and it MUST stay there. This field must be non editable. Can anyone help?
