Lock Controls on a form

P: n/a
Is there a way to lock certain controls so that no data can be
entered/modified in them?

For example, on form frmMain I would have control_1, control_2, and
control_3. I have passed data to control_1 and control_2 and I do not want
the user to modify, change, or delete it. They are only allowed to enter
data into control_3.

Thanks
Mike

Form controls have a Locked property. You'll find it on the data tab of the
property sheet.
