I can no longer type in custom fields

Not sure how or why this happened. I can click on the field and I get a blinking cursor but nothing happens when I type. We are using ACT 2007 Premium for Workgroups.

Re: I can no longer type in custom fields

did something happen to your layout?  GO to tools, Design layouts,  Do you see the fields names next to your fields?  if you don't the fields got seperated from the layout. You will need to add them back by double clicking on each field and selecting the field.


This often happens when people copy a layout from one database to another because hte layouts are tied to the field names.
